Two robbers are stealing air conditioning units and the owner defends his property with bear repellent pepper spray
Today we have a story from Atlanta, GA.
A homeowner in DeKalb county got his house air conditioning units stolen right from his back yard. Not once but two times in a row. Mind you, those were not some window A/C units, no, we are talking two stationary units bolted to the cement foundation next to his house — heavy stuff.
After the first crime, Roby Dail, the homeowner in the story, replaced two stolen units and put a steel case around them. In a few months the A/C units got stolen again. After the same crime was committed second time, Mr. Dail also installed an alarm, a video surveillance camera watching the cage with the A/C units inside and got himself some potent pepper spray.
And if you guessed that the thieves came for his air conditioners one more time — you got it right, they did.
This is what happened next: Read on…
“…At 3:21 Wednesday morning, Dail and his wife woke to the wailing of their alarm system. After the three incidents last year, the family had a metal cage placed around their air conditioning units and wired it to trigger an alarm and surveillance camera.
Roby Dail witnessed two men pulling open the doors to the cage in an attempt to get to the units. With the video camera rolling, Dail ran outside and challenged the men, who were ignoring the alarm that could be heard three houses away.
Roby pursued the thieves to his driveway. As they jumped in a van, Dail opened fire with his pepper spray, a concoction so powerful it’s labeled “bear deterrent”.
“I hit ’em good,” Dail said . “I was right in their window.”
“It had to hurt ’em,” said Dail. “They were struggling to see as they drove down the road.”
