Phillip is a die-hard Trump fan and he means business when he says “stay off my lawn.”
According to WRTV News, the Indiana man claims he has been targeted by those who oppose the Republican presidential candidate. Their outward signs of protest include people trying to steal his lawn signs twice in the past month.
He recalled the first attempt:
“I looked out my front door and the sign was lying about four feet over, and it was crumpled up pretty good.”
In an attempt to give the thieves a good dose of karma, he booby-trapped his front lawn.
ABC News reports that Phillip’s lawn is now adorned with fishing wire, string painted green to match the grass and a camouflaged camera in a nearby tree.
His trap seemed to work, catching an unnamed woman on camera as she tripped over the fishing wire while trying to steal his signs.

He says that bringing justice to sign stealers this election season is a non-partisan issue:
“Whether it’s a Bernie or Hillary or a Trump sign, you might disagree with whatever the politics are, but it’s not yours. Leave it alone.”
Local police have received Phillip’s video of the attempted theft with no word on if they’ll investigate or whether Phillip will press charges.
