A couple was arrested in 2020 after being suspected of luring thieves to their home before beating them viciously with baseball bats. The two vigilantes didn't stop there - they would record the attacks and post them on YouTube.

The couple would trick potential thieves by leaving a bike unattended in their front yard. Several potential thieves got severe beatings at the couple's California home.
