Could this idea be used to solve gutter thefts in the Baltimore area.......

Man Uses String to Solve Sign Thefts

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A homeowner frustrated with the theft of campaign signs from his front yard rigged up an alarm system with string and bells—and solved his own crime problem.
"He slept the night in his living room fully dressed so he could be ready," police Detective Jared Wihongi said Monday.

The homeowner was jarred awake early Saturday when bells rang from a string anchored to a sign in his yard.

He recorded the license plate of a man he says took a campaign sign supporting a Salt Lake City Council candidate.

Police tracked down and cited Gary Robert Heintz, 52, with misdemeanor attempted theft.

"He claimed he didn't have any political motives or have any feelings that give any motive," Wihongi told the Deseret Morning News. "He just told the police he'd been involved in a 'strange incident' and didn't know why he did it."

Mine is already electrically rigged. I connected the gutter system to high voltage coil fed with a capacitor all the way up to 10,000 Volts. I measured the discharge current and it was about 10 amps. This should transfer 100,000 Watts to a would be thief, enough to tickle him
