Thief's Attempt To Steal Booby-Trapped Trump Sign Doesn't End Well

A Trump supporter got so sick and tired of people stealing “Vote For Trump” signs from his yard that he did this.

A Trump fan finally had enough of people stealing his front yard signs, so he decided to teach them a lesson.

A man from Indianapolis, Indiana, decided to set up cameras and booby trap his “Trump: Make America Great Again” signs after they kept getting stolen from his garden by people who did not share his political stance.

The man, identified only as Philip, said people had tried to get rid of the signs twice in one month, prompting him to take such actions against the trespassers.

The peeved homeowner set up a hidden camera focused on the signs on one of his trees and then jerry-rigged his signs to a fishing line and attached it to a wall in a bid to catch one of the culprits in his snare.

Soon enough, his moment came.

During the weekend, an unsuspecting woman came strolling by and spotting the signs, approached Philip’s garden. But when she tried to take to take them away, she was in for a nasty surprise: The fishing line yanked the signs back in place and the woman was sent flying out of view. She fled the scene, all thoughts of the sign forgotten.

After his trap did the job, a relieved Philip sent a message out to those who, in the future, might consider setting foot on his lawn and stealing his property.

“Whether it’s a Hillary, Bernie or Trump sign, it’s not yours. It don’t (sic) belong to you,” said Philip. “You might disagree with whatever the politics are, but it’s not yours. Leave it alone.”
