Bear trap fails to snag burglar

NEW CASTLE — A bear trap failed to prevent a burglar from entering a home in the 400 block of Countyline Street.

That’s because the trap wasn’t set.

Someone broke into the house around 12:20 p.m. Sunday and stole two cordless drills and chargers and a bag of tools.

The resident told New Castle police she normally keeps a large bear trap set at the bottom of her basement steps, but she had forgotten to set it that day.

The police suggested she forego the bear trap and find a different way of protecting her home from intruders.
