But they can come and get what they want and there is nothing to do but let them take it.... I did it anyway and the kid down the block started walking 4 days later.. When I saw him pass by the house, I asked him what happened, he told me that his engine rusted from the inside out. I did a little happy dance, as I told him that I never heard of such a thing.
Booby trapping would be if you setup a bear trap on top of toilet tank where burglars continue to crawl through window to break in your home. This is called "lying in wait". You mixing gas to your liking or whatever reason you feel is your business.

That cop you talked to is wrong which is not surprising.
