TIED TO TREEMIAMI HERALD – Nathanial Johnson had grown tired of the burglaries at his mobile home in the small town of Leroy, Alabama, about 60 miles north of Mobile.

So the 68-year-old decided to take matters into his own hands on Friday night by springing a trap, Washington County Sheriff Richard Stringer told Fox affiliate WALA.

In an attempt to make it look like nobody was home, Johnson parked his vehicle at a neighbor’s home and returned to his abode and waited, according to Al.com.

Sitting near his back door, Johnson told police, he turned the lights off and placed a car mirror near a window so he could see what was happening outside, according to WALA.

Johnson told authorities that someone knocked on his front door before midnight, Al.com reported. Johnson didn’t answer and continued to wait as he heard the person move to the back door and break the lock, Al.com reported.

  1. I will like to get some of that anti-burglar tape. Then I will put up a sign saying "Beware of the Tape."

  2. i guess every once in a while someone does some vigilante justice when you are sick and fed up and the law has failed you and failed to do its job, but at least in this case mr johnson did not beat his ass like we would have done here, and its a good thing too cause they would say is the beating that would have killed the burglar.
