NEW CASTLE A bear trap failed to prevent a burglar from entering a home in the 400 block of Countyline Street.
Thats because the trap wasnt set.
Someone broke into the house around 12:20 p.m. Sunday and stole two cordless drills and chargers and a bag of tools.
The resident told New Castle police she normally keeps a large bear trap set at the bottom of her basement steps, but she had forgotten to set it that day.

It takes special clamps and some time to set a real bear trap. Plus they are large and heavy. I think she full of BS.
She is also insanely stupid. If she had caught and hurt a burglar she would be in for a world of lawsuit pain.
More than likely this was a smaller leg hold trap. Probably raccoon sized.
She's lucky SHE didn't get arrested! Most states/municipalities have laws AGAINST "booby traps", don't they?
I wonder what she has against the usual methods of deterring burglars.....
I just don't get it.. Bear traps???
