    This is why we got Arlo security cameras. One of the trucks was broken into and almost stolen, so up went the cameras. They've been up for almost 3 years now and are a great help.

    First off, I don't know what the zoning laws are where you live but in a lot of places electric fences and razor wire are prohibited. Secondly, some police departments will not prosecute people for trespassing unless the property is posted no trespassing. So my suggestion, post the property in multiple locations so no one can claim "I didn't see the signs". Install good security cameras with storage capability. The first time someone ends up on candid camera, make a trip to the cop shop and make an example of him/her. The old saying about shooting the first one and the rest will fall in line has some truth to it.

          I have a dozen vehicles here. I recently noticed the wiper arms are missing from a few. Wth? And im here almost all the time. Camera #1, with signs stating the fact there are cameras. And trespassers will be prosecuted signs. If these are somewhat educated people,they will get the message.

            If they are coming in at night, motion lights will surprise them and either let them see better for what they are looking for or startle them into leaving. They work only once though, they get used to them and next time they are usually not put off. But, combined with signs and cameras, with the added "smile, you are on camera", it keeps the honest ones out. I know booby trapping is illegal, but, what about some kind of Mcgyvered fire cracker loud noise situation that pops when something is tampered with....no harm in that.

            I knew a guy way back in the day (80s) that had a couple of 69 road runners in his yard, he chained a big ol dog up in between them, no one got near those cars, or the yard for that matter...just saying it worked...

                Do you have an extension cord long enough to reach the cars?

                Put up enough No Trespassing signs so that Stevie Wonder couldn't miss em, and then call your Register of Deeds office in the county you live in to officially register the signs and that the property is posted. A friend of mine that's in law enforcement told me that makes a difference if a situation ever gets to court. Ask your cousin if that holds true in your area also. Then I would get one of those Weed Burner electric fence chargers, and run at least 2 strands of hot wire around the perimeter of the property. First time someone gets a taste of that fence, they probably won't be back. Those Weed Burner chargers will make you taste the fillings in your teeth when you get bit/burnt by one! :eek: Sorry these ass hats are causing you trouble.

                  Dam Rani that sucks. I know all to well what ur going thru. Now a days the court system can’t be bothered to prosecute trespassers on little shit like this. A big dog is ur friend. Beware of dog signs everywhere. Post up that violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Kim

                    You said you can see where they are jumping the fence. Fixing that spot will just make them find another spot to jump over.
                    However, leave the fence alone, put a few no trespassing signs and simply forget that you left a half sheet of plywood with a couple dozen nails or screws run thru it, pointy side up, laying out there where they land. They'll only jump the fence once. Word will get out.

                        Do not put nails in a board. Don't do this, everyone has phones and they will call the Police and Ambulance, you will be arrested for setting a Booby trap, they are illegal everywhere.

                          Not if you say it isnt a booby trap... you say "I was doing a little remodeling on my wood shed I must have left that lying there..."its the same as a hammer is a tool till used to hit someone in the head with it then its a weapon...yeah I know its a lie but it is an effort to thwart a would be thief...two negatives equal a positive.:)

                          not talking about booby traps here at all, but got an old shed nearby?

                          i was walking the perimeter around a non disclosed building the other day that was about 20 years old
                          around that building were several AC units and when the place was new someone had build little wooded roofs for the AC units and shingled them

                          over time, the frames of those roofs had come loose and there were several pieces of particle board, with the singles still attached, laying around
                          i picked them up and put them away, because it looked like someone had used 1 inch nails to attach the shingles to 5/16th sheeting

                          I agree, I would put a bullet through there head and put a knife in there hand, but you have to be carful with anything you do. I know we would all hate to see Rani get put in jail but with all of us here I'm sure we could pony up for the best lawyer possible.

                            a bunch of cameras even if not hooked up would make a person think twice.

                            I use the Arlo setup. Cant say I actually could identify someone from them. but I am alerted via cell and can speak through the camera. There is a 5 second delay it seems.

                            In Texas we have the right to shoot trespassers. You don't have to kill them but once someone is shot at they usually stay away!!!
