HUMBLE, Texas -- After his car was broken into twice, Arnold Huerta wanted to make sure the thieves knew not to mess with him again.
He left a note on the back of his truck that read in part: "I saw you at 2 a.m. trying to open my truck. I called Humble police and waited patiently. Humble police never showed up. I'm just saying, if I see you trying to break into my private property again, I'm going to take matters into my own hands now that I know Humble police won't show up."
Huerta closed the note with the hashtags #USvet, #SecondAmendment, #GetAJob and #GodIsGood, among others.
He later posted a photo of the letter to Facebook; it was taped to the back of his truck with a shotgun perched on the tailgate.
The Humble Police Department told ABC13 that they responded to Huerta's call for assistance within 10 minutes. null
