A bear trap failed to prevent a burglar from entering a home in New Castle, western Pennsylvania. That’s because the trap wasn’t set.
Someone broke into the house at around 12:20pm last 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.
The police suggested she forego the bear trap and find a different way of protecting her home from intruders.
