This tale of revenge comes to us hot off the presses! A guy tells his story of getting a neighbor imprisoned and evicted for stealing his mail!
A Problem Neighbor
The original poster (OP) had a problem neighbor for years. This neighbor had been causing problems and terrorizing the area with his drug addiction and drug dealing.
Who Was Causing Havoc
Although it was not OP’s business what his neighbor did, it became his issue as his unsavory friends started popping up and causing trouble.
They would break into houses and cars, steal packages, and damage cars!
His Problem Friends
The neighbor had admitted that it was his friends doing all these things, and CCTV from other neighbors showed his friend’s damaging cars.
OP knew that his neighbor was involved in all of this, and he had seen him and his friends at odd hours of the night.
They would ring his bell in the dead of night, around 2/3 AM, and it became a regular occurrence.
They’d Argued So Many Times
OP had tried to talk to his neighbor about these issues, but he had never listened.
The neighbor would steal bank cards that came in the mail and made an obnoxious amount of noise that woke the OP up.
He had argued with him several times, but nothing changed.
He Should Have Kept a Low Profile
The neighbor had been in prison multiple times for various serious crimes, so one would think he would try to keep his head down as a free man.
He continued to cause trouble, leaving the main door to their apartment open so his friends could come and go, even though OP had asked him not to.
Sometimes they would even kick the door down and trash the area!
They Would Steal His Mail
OP’s apartment was converted into four apartments, with a main area downstairs to walk through and where mail got delivered.
Whenever OP got a package and he wasn’t home, the courier would leave the package unattended in the front garden or the main area outside his door, despite his instructions not to.
The neighbor and his friends would steal his packages in seconds, and when confronted, he would deny it.
But He Couldn’t Prove It
The issue was that OP never had any proof of his neighbor’s misdeeds, except for one time when he called the police after he received a note of apology from his neighbor for his friend stealing his package.
Unfortunately, that went nowhere. He was at his wit’s end. He had no proof, and his neighbor seemed to be untouchable.
But Then He Had an Idea
But he was not going to give up. OP would not let his over £250 worth of stolen packages go unaddressed this time.
He put up a camera in the main area, saved the boxes from some other packages, and placed an apple and some plastic bags in there for weight, waiting for his neighbor or his friends to take the bait.
The Perfect Set Up
He set the packages outside, and within minutes, his neighbor’s friend had stolen them, unaware it was all caught on camera! OP had caught them in the act.
The Police Were Too Late
He called the police, who commended him on his setup skills, but the problem neighbor had left the building by the time they arrived.
OP saw him leave with packed bags filled with drugs to sell. However, the police told OP they would look out for him.
But Then a Twist
A few weeks later, OP received a call from the police.
They asked him about the theft and whether he knew anything about his neighbor selling class-A drugs and terrorizing the area.
OP told them his suspicions and the police told him they would pay him a visit.
Imagine Waking up to This!
Five days later, at 7 AM, OP received a call from the same police officer asking him to open the door quickly and quietly. He did, and she told him to go inside.
However, he saw about 15 plain-clothed officers hiding behind a wall before he did!
Revenge Was Served
When he looked through the peephole, he saw them all storm inside, boot down his neighbor’s door, and arrest everyone inside! It was a crackhouse, and they seized boxes of drugs.
And to top it all off, OP had caught it all on camera, so he sent the footage to the landlord!
The police also got in touch with the landlord, so his neighbor got evicted.
A Happy Ending With a Moral
Now, a month later, none of his neighbor’s mail has been picked up, and OP is relishing in his victory! He’s overjoyed at the outcome and can rest easy now that the problem neighbor has gone.
The moral of the story is simple: keep your hands to yourself!
