Sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone.
My whole family was in law enforcement. I have the utmost respect for our first responders. Our current justice system however is broken. I've had 3 different instances in the last few years where I, or my neighbor had undeniable evidence of crimes being committed; and NOTHING was done. I had one of the Thugs brother willing to turn the punk into the Sheriff, and still NOTHING. I think the reason is because our system is overloaded. Why arrest these guys that are a drain on the system and just cost money. It's more cost effective to put people in jail that need to get out to go back to work Monday morning. That guy will pay into the system and not milk it dry. I wouldn't want to be a LEO in this day and age. Gone are the good ole days when you could just tune a guy up if he needed it the old fashion way.

Discreetly set up 2 trail cameras that send live picture images or video to your cell phone. Place one near the front entrance of your property and leave the gate open and set the "trap". Position the other trail cam near your feeder ... place a cheap old climbing tree stand or other hunting items near your feeder where suspect would be tempted to steal it and place in the bed of his truck.

Once you receive picture notification he's on your property, get home ASAP, close the gate, and lock with chain & padlocks. Immediately call the GW or local LEO reporting you heard "shots fired" and you have the suspect locked inside your property. Once realizing he's "locked in", he may get nervous and try to drive through your fence, thus warranting criminal damage to property charges.

Set this dude up like a bowling pin
I like this idea but can we have Jason build a high fence coral trap with a Jager Pro guillotine style trap door. Then we can set up a live feed from his cellular trail cam and we can watch him try to escape!!!

Then after 6 months of calling the sheriff assigned to the case and getting no satisfaction, you'll just give up. At least that's how they work here in Brazoria county.
My dad saw where some meth heads from across the street had barricaded themselves in his storage building during a raid the night before. He didn't know if they were still in there so he called the cops. The dispatcher told him it would be later that afternoon before they could send an officer. He said it's fine I have my pistol with me. She said sir no don't do that, we have an officer in the area. Five minutes later they pulled up. Dad is as laid back as they come but trespassing meth addicts in one of his buildings will give him the red *** in a hurry.

Be careful Jason. When you go visit him, you'll be the one trespassing. It would suck for him to press charges, or "defend" his property while you're questioning him.
