Live on a small ranch, completely fenced with barbed wire.  Quite a few different buildings and out buildings.
Have some friends over last night for some BBQ and we were all next door in the club house.  My GF comes in
about 6:20 and says I left the door open to the loafing shed and the cats got out.  Was pretty  sure I had closed it.
This morning I get up and find the door to my shed open...ah fuck.  Look inside and my stuff is spread all over but
not much missing except a Gama Pellet Gun.

I go in the house and start watching multiple camera angles.  This Fuck, walked right down our driveway next to
the clubhouse (the gate is usually closed and locked) and he casually walks to the back of the property and goes
into the loafing shed.  He had a back pack and a skate board when he went in.  He comes out a few minutes later
with neither of them.  He casuallly walks back towards the club house and checks the door on my car and is looking
inside.  
He then turns around and enters my shed that is attached to a walkway that goes to the backyard.
No sooner does he go inside and closes the door, my GF is walking by and sees the cats out and goes and shuts
the door to the loafing shed.  There is a window in the shed and no doubt this Fuck is watching and heard her calling
the cats.  She walks back to the club house and we eat dinner.  He is in there for about 20 minutes and then he walks
out with a gun bag (it was empty sitting on a shelf) and obviously the pellet gun in it.  

He starts back up the way he came in and decides better and goes back out the back of the property and climbs
over the barbed wire fence.  He left his skate board in the shed.

So after going through all my shit, I think he spooked.  Here is the fucking weird things.  I had my Vortex Razor spotting
scope in a bag with a tripod and a chrono.  He took the cordera cover and left a $1500.00 spotting scope and everything
he had packed up to take.

Your security cameras don't alert on motion?

Shoot a bunch of holes in the skateboard. Write "you forgot something" on it and leave by the street

Yep.
And he'll be bringing his friends with him.
Too much for one man to carry.

Dude it's 2022, you think your state is immune to stuff like this happening too? If anything is outside it's fair game, period.

Oh fuck, they would be going off all the time.  Lot's of animals around here.
Besides we were next door.  There were 7 vehicles here at the time.  He didn't
give a fuck if he got caught or not.
I will see him around this neighborhood soon.  This was broad fucking daylight and
I have tons of video of him, his clothes, his walk.  He was wearing a pull up gator over
his nose.

Just dig a shallow grave right near the barn and stand the shovel and bag of lime right next to it.

He should get the message... and if not....

The trespassing is one thing, entering my personal buildings is another.  I normally lock that shed at night but we got in a hurry
last night doing our chores because our friends were coming for dinner.

I do like that idea.  Reminds me of Diehard when the body came down the elevator.  "I have a machine gun now"

The piece of shit probably stole the skateboard to begin with and is too retarded to recognize a expensive spotting scope..

He just climbs over a barbed wire fence? You need electrified fencing and more barbed wire
Link Posted: 9/22/2022 1:11:49 PM EDT

You need a system that alerts on people/vehicles only.

I love the cheap Wyze cams because the AI is good at recognizing people only.

Either turn the skateboard over to LE and ask it be fingerprinted to identify the perp or take matters into your own hands when he comes back. Lots of folks I know might bust him up with a bat just enough to discourage him from ever returning. Not that I’d recommend that.

Had someone wander in a couple days ago after sundown. He threw a leg over the second wire and was coming into the area around the house, and I told him to fuck off.
I was standing about 10 feet from him and he stood up while he was still in the fence... Not a country boy that one

I have been waiting for him to turn back up.

Get better cameras. Even the mid range Reolink systems can distinguish between animal and person these days.

I’d make myself comfortable in the shed and wait for his return.

I did like the suggestion of modifying his skateboard as a warning.  Combine two, skateboard as headstone to shallow grave for bonus points.

The way the half-wits are these days, he’ll probably knock on your door and ask for his skateboard back.

We have a majority of the fence lines that are electric but not on this side.  We don't have any livestock
on this side.

Go shit in someone else's thread.  It's a 27 acre working ranch right on the edge of the city limits.  County jurisdiction here.
