Quoted from Azmodeus:
yesterday, someone broke into veronikas new bmw and took the sunglasses and the charging cable. it happened about 3 am gated comunity. we are thinking about putting a bear trap on the seat.
Probably not a good idea. You can be sued and will likely lose. Not to mention, setting up a "booby trap" is illegal so you could actually be charged criminally for the thief getting injured. So in the end, although you are a victim of a crime you could be the one who suffers more consequences. It sucks, I know, but that's the reality of the world we live in.
