Video: Car Owner Booby-Traps His Truck So When These Thieves Show Up, They Got A Big Surprise – The Police Urges Residents Not To Take Matters Into Their Own Hands After This Video

A Metairie man rigged a flashbang to deter people from breaking into his truck, and the incident was caught on video.

The man who rigged the flash bang said he understands this wasn’t the best way to go about deterring car burglaries, but was frustrated with how often his truck was broken into it.

He rigged a flash-bang inside his truck that would trigger if someone broke in.


Surveillance shows that the flashbang went off while someone broke into his truck in New Orleans.

The video shows a man breaking the glass of his truck and crawl inside. Shortly after the person entered the truck a flash can be seen.

The person who broke into the truck jumps out and runs away.

The man who rigged the flash-bang said he understands this wasn’t the best way to go about deterring car burglaries, but was frustrated with how often his truck was broken into it.

  1. The criminal was uninjured leaving him the opportunity to continue his criminal missions.
    The flash-bang should have been more constructive.

  2. “…Not To Take Matters into Their Own Hands…”? Are the police joking? How many times must a citizen ignore the threats on person or property and no police protection or even an investigation?
    I applaud this guy for he did what any sensible person would do without killing the thief. If a citizen is threatened by these thugs, they not only have the right to put in place a flash device but if personally threatened, they should have the right to shoot the perp.

  3. “…Police Urge Residents Not To Take Matters Into Their Own Hands…”

    Yeah, right. So, are the police going to set up a guard unit to protect his truck? ROTFLMAO! It is always up to us to protect our belongings and by whatever means works. Police only investigate and clean up afterwards. Screw the cops.

  4. They should be told they can leave something more lethal. We are much to easy on criminals. When law breakers are arrested they should be put on work gangs for a certain length of time, I will bet that would be the best cure they could get! It was done in the past and proved worthy then. The bigger problem is why has ‘family’ and education failed so many young people in today’s world? Perhaps the lack of leadership in the Judeo/Christians tradition might be one of the major reasons.

  5. Well it worked. It may have, also, kept a police officer from spending the rest of his life in prison, because, if the police do their job, they are subjected to anything possible to make sure they can’t do their jobs.

  6. you police can F O, you have to do what you have to do if you are NOT THERE, I think we need more vigilante style justice because police can’t (or won’t) arrest these savages and thugs

  7. I was wondering if dye packs like banks use to mark bank robbers would be legal and if the dye pack would stain the car or trucks interior.
