Glitter has become the latest measure used by one Scituate business owner to deter package thieves. 

Melissa Peralta, owner of Suddenly Simple Events, tells WATD News that she decided to use a glitter bomb after her business was among the targets of local package thieves. 


Peralta says she arrived Friday morning to discover someone had taken it. 


Peralta says the goal of this plan was to discourage the package thief, not to imprison them. 


Scituate Police are investigating and in the meantime Peralta says they will continue to get their mail directly from the Post Office.
