I HAVE A NEIGHBOR THAT HAS BEEN STEALING MY NEWSPAPER. HOW SHOULD I HANDLE IT?
Here's the story in a nutshell.

I'm 24 years old. There's a man who lives down the street from me and I'd guess he's in his 50's.

When I first got my driver's license 8 yrs ago I had an altercation with him. He walks his dog on my street and I passed by him going to my house and he felt like I was speeding. When I pulled in my driveway he followed me and came on to my property and walked down my driveway to where I was parked.

He started yelling at me about speeding and told me he would report me to the police in the future. I more or less told him to go ahead and he left.

Ever since then, whenever I drive passed him while he's walking his dog, he stares me down with what I would describe as "crazy eyes." He stares me down the whole time I am driving up to him and when I pass him he'll stop and turn around in the street and continue to stare me down as I'm driving off.

And this happens EVERY time we pass each other.

Recently, when I was heading to class one morning his wife is out walking. As I'm approaching her she looks at me very menacingly and throws her hands on her hips and stomps her foot in the street and yells "YOU NEED TO SLOW DOWN!!!!" when I pass by her. The speed limit in the neighborhood is 25 and I looked at my speedometer when she started yelling at I was doing about 28.

The other day my mother was out in the front yard doing some yard work and the man was out walking his dog and he stared her down the same way he does me.

Now I'm a little pissed.

But that's all just background.

There have been numerous times that my sunday paper has gone missing. We have checked with the delivery service and it was indeed delivered so obviously someone is stealing it.

The man walks his dog in the early mornings and always passes by our house. The paper is left at the end of the driveway. He is the only possible person who I would suspect of stealing it.

So my question to you all is what is the best way to go about handling it?

Here's my solution:

I will be up when the paper is delivered and covertly monitor my driveway from inside the house.

I will record in my digital cam when he walks by and will have video of him committing the theft.

Next I will call 911 on my cell and follow him to his house in my vehicle. I will inform the dispatcher that a neighbor had just burglarized my property and I'm sitting in front of his house and about to go and confront him.

I'm pretty sure that will result in multiple police units be dispatched quickly to the location. I'll show the cops the video and press charges.

Since the news paper is only about $2.00 it will only be a petty larceny.

Since he came onto my property illegally and stole an item from my property can there be any additional charges such as criminal tresspass or burglary?

Any thoughts, opinions, or insight as to how I handle this would be greatly appreciated.

Tell the Newspaper to tell its delivery person to place it in your mail slot.

How about filming the area? With a webcam or digicam. My camera can be set to take a small picture every X amount of time…like 1 or 2 a second. That will catch him. Wouldn't that be interesting?

Have the newspaper company put it on your porch explain the stealing neighbor and request the paper be put in a specific place also you can be there in the morning before the neighbor comes to take your paper you take it before he does, also you can put up a video camera catch him in the act call police he was on your property that's trespassing and also he is stealing so that's two offenses right there.

Call your paper company that delivers your paper and request that the paper be delivered to your front door(porch) because you caught your neighbor picking it up. Now, if your neighbor comes to your front porch, it's time to get out the tazer...

Re: I HAVE A NEIGHBOR THAT HAS BEEN STEALING MY NEWSPAPER. HOW SHOULD I HANDLE IT?
It seems your new to setting people up.

You want to get something bigger than a Newspaper on the guy, it's 90% likely the cops will scold him and leave and then your just even larger on his hit list.

Do the right thing, get your camera set up and leave a steaming pile of shit inside the paper so it falls all over him when he picks it up..or something to that effect.

If you really wanted to get rotten about it you catch him in the act and crack him upside the face with bat and stick a knife in his hands, say you caught him stealing the paper and he freaked out and tried to kill you, have a flase witness.

His word againstb 2 of yours and he was on your porch so you'll win if you can acta bit.

I'd go with the pile of shit in the paer myself, no need to get medieval over some dirty looks

Re: I HAVE A NEIGHBOR THAT HAS BEEN STEALING MY NEWSPAPER. HOW SHOULD I HANDLE IT?
sounds similar to something i had going on with my neighbor a few years ago, speed limit and everything, except he likes to make his dogs hold their shit until they get to our yard, my solution? i waited outside with camo and night vision in the bushes and when the newspaper came and he tried to take it i poped out and fired a few rounds of paintballs at his feet, scared him shitless since he was a vietnam vet, didnt hit him since i only shot the ground around his feet, he didnt get my newspaper that day or ever again, and he doesnt let his dog shit in my yard anymore XD

I too am gonna have to say shit in the newspaper.

Sounds disgusting right? Sure, it is, and what's he going to do, report you for shitting in a newspaper that he steals regularly?

Record the whole thing, particularly his reaction as he discovers the warm turd awaiting him within.

Re: I HAVE A NEIGHBOR THAT HAS BEEN STEALING MY NEWSPAPER. HOW SHOULD I HANDLE IT?
you don't know who is taking it. the camera thing is a good idea.

don't place anything harmful in the paper because you never know who is actually taking the paper. it could be some poor old woman down the street or a kid or something.

AFTER you video the guy and ask him to stop without telling him he's nailed. Tape that part too. Try to get him to lose it.
