I live alone at a nature center and part of my job is to watchfor suspicious activity at night. After dark I put a chain across the entrance to the parking lot so that no one comes in. The chain is not locked so sometimes people will take the chain down and drive in. Tonight that happened. Two cars drove in and drove to the upper parking lot then into the grass and parked near a pavilion. I think they just wanted to take photos of their cars.
I had my binoculars and could read the license plate on one of the cars. I snuck back down, wrote the number on a piece of paper, put the chain back up, and put the hook through the piece of paper.
Later when they drove out I heard one guy yell to the other “Yo. Yo! YO! Did you put it back up? Someone did it, right?” Then they left without putting the chain back up. I shined my flashlight at them as they drove away. Hopefully I scared them away and they won’t come back.
