National News // By Tay Kinnear // July 24, 2019

A burglary victim in canton Thurgau is taking the law into his own hands – and the local police are not happy.

The man retuned home after a vacation last week to discover his home had been robbed. He has security cameras installed and instead of calling the police, he put the images of the intruder on Facebook and asked if anyone knew who he was.

The police say he should have reported it to them and is warning the alleged burglar could now sue for breach of his rights.

But the comments on social media are supportive of the move and many have come up with suggestions on the identity of the man.
