A Donald Trump supporter found a novel way to discourage people from stealing a Trump sign.

In a home surveillance video posted on YouTube, a man is seen walking with a stroller near the home. The video shows him walking into the yard and attempting to yank a Trump sign from the lawn. But he quickly drops the “booby trapped” sign and runs away.

According to the video description, the theft attempt resulted in a trespassing charge for the man who tried to pick up the sign.

[Editor’s Note: The YouTube video title and text on the video incorrectly state that the man was electrocuted.]
