VIDEO: Man catches two women stealing his beach canopy in New Smyrna Beach
Here’s a lesson for you: Don’t leave your stuff unattended at the beach. A Florida man visiting New Smyrna Beach this weekend learned this the hard way. He left his stuff on the beach for an hour so that his kids could catch a nap. When he came back? Two women were making off with his family’s beach supplies, including a huge beach canopy that they couldn’t seem to figure out how to dismantle.
The man approached the two beach-thieving women while wielding his iPhone, asking if they needed any help.
“Do you know how to do it?” the women asked him.
“Yeah,” he replied. “This is our stuff.”
The women continued to play dumb for a few seconds before realizing that they were, indeed, caught in the act. It was at this point that one of the women started to get angry. She ducked under the canopy frame that she was attempting to steal, and demanded that the man step back, which he did.
After shutting off his camera, the man continued to back away from the women, but one of them was not letting it go. The man behind the camera told Gawker, “In the most bizarre moment she gnashed her teeth, lunging at me with an open palm and said, ‘I’ll grab your dick!’ I appreciated the offer but didn’t feel the chemistry was there.”
The man immediately forwarded the video to his sister and wife, who called 911. By the time his family, and Beach Patrol arrived, the guilty women had left. Since nothing was taken, he did not press charges on the women, despite the threat of a dick grab.
If you see the women in the below video, steer clear and keep an eye on your stuff.
