In this edition of bear spray justice... Check it. In San Francisco, a woman gets fed up with a burglar who's been stealing packages from homes in her neighborhood, so she takes matters into her own hands: San Francisco Woman Apprehends Burglar with Bear Spray, Live-tweets the Incident.
Sonya Yu set up her own sting operation, complete with a dummy package, and took down the thievin' sucka with bear repellent and a samurai sword -- and live-tweeted the whole thing while it was going down. The cops nabbed him, and alleged burglar Andy Anduha was in police custody:
On Tuesday, she put out a 'bait package' and waited on her balcony to see whether the burglar would try to steal it.Justice. I normally don't recommend taking the law into your own hands, but damn, that had to feel good. As it happens, this isn't first time this blog has told the tale of Bear Spray Justice. And hopefully, it won't be the last.
'Apparently, our neighborhood thief has a violent rape rap sheet. My bear spray, bokken, & I are still not intimidated,' she tweeted about 2.10pm.
A bokken is a wood samurai sword used for training.
At 4.45pm, she tweeted about writing her wedding vows and how she was certainly going to cry as she read them at her wedding.
Then, 30 minutes later, she tweeted: 'I GOT HIM WITH THE BEAR SPRAY BUT HE ESCAPED.'
'8 COPS HAVE HIM & I JUST CONFIRMED ID,' she wrote minutes later.
'HE IS BEIN TAKEN AWAY IN AN AMBULANCE CUZ OF THE BEAR SPRAY I DOUSED HIM WITH,' she added.
'He escaped, but not far. The bear spray debilitated him & painted him orange so other cops picked him up within 5 minutes. GOT HIM!' Miss Yu wrote in a frenzied series of tweets.
