Box rigged with firecracker provides unpleasant surprise for package thief

Here we see a gentleman scale a 3-foot picket fence to enter a front yard. It’s night, and his face is partially disguised in a hoodie. His behavior suggests he’s engaged in an activity that he would prefer others not to know about. Our supposition is confirmed when the gentleman walks to the front porch and grabs some packages that don’t belong to him. He is probably wondering what treasure lies within the corrugated shells when BANG! — a firecracker in one of the packages explodes, throwing sparks. The startled gentleman makes a hasty retreat. As he rescales the fence on his way out, we imagine he is reconsidering his life choices and promising to himself that from now on he will bring a long stick with him when he plies his trade.
