Woman tries to catch burglars with bear trap

TYLER, Texas Linda Frias said her car radio was stolen, and she had spotted trespassers several times.

She came up with a plan to set bear traps.

"I wanted to hide them underneath that travel trailer...and put me some leaves and stuff and let the caretaker know that they were there, that way when I heard it go off or heard somebody yell we know we'd caught them," said Frias.

Until she comes up with another plan, Frias said she's going to buy a set of binoculars to keep a close watch on her property.
