Detroit Woman Begs Thieves To Return Her Front Porch

According to WWJ 950 in Detroit, city resident India Gardner returned home from her job at Chrysler Saturday to discover a porch pirate had struck. No, no one had stolen an Amazon package. The porch pirates literally ripped off her entire front porch!

The steps, rail and's all gone, and India isn't in the mood to play games. She wants her porch back so she can get back to doing more important things, like rehabbing homes and turning them into investments.

"My porch wasn't wooden and I legit wanted my porch back. this is not a joke," she wrote Tuesday on Instagram Story.

"I didn't know I would be buying a porch, you know," she said on another video. "It's funny, but it's not lol. I'm laughing but I'm pissed lol."

According to her Facebook promo page, India, who also rehabs homes, estimates it'll cost her $1,000-$1,200 to put a new porch on the house.
