If you’ve ever been the victim of a crime and wished for sweet, sweet revenge, check out the video above of a burglar stumbling into a trap.

The video was published Tuesday by Youtube user Edward Diffu. It starts with a guy wiggling through a window before finally getting into a house and walking away. And that’s it.

But the story continues in the video’s description, which reveals that the residents of the home set up the camera after suffering two previous burglaries. The cops found the guy, the description adds, and he confessed.

The video was also posted on Reddit by someone called itsonlymeman, who appears to be the same person that put the video on Youtube. According to itsonlymeman, the police found the guy using mug shots from prior crimes. He also apparently set off an alarm at the home and fled without stealing anything, though he did get things in previous incidents.

There are plenty of other questions we could ask — where and when did it happen, for example — but that’s not really the point. Instead, just sit back and enjoy the fact that sometimes the bad guys get what’s coming to them.
