    Russia farmer convicted of planting landmines in field

    Russia farmer convicted of planting landmines in field



    A Russian farmer has been convicted of planting landmines around his field to ward off trespassers.

    Alexander Skopintsev, from the eastern region of Primorye near China's border, laid the three devices on his land after building them in his garage.

    The 73-year-old had apparently been concerned about the frequent theft of potatoes from his farm.

    He was arrested after an intruder set off one of the tripwire-style mines in August and was injured in the blast.

    Skopintsev was convicted for the unlawful construction and storage of weapons and received a two-and-a-half year suspended sentence.

    "Skopintsev testified that he had prepared the explosive devices to protect his garden against thieves," regional prosecutors said in a statement reported by RIA-Novosti news agency.

    Good for him, more of the starving bastards should do that and maybe it would break a lot of thieves from taking stuff that don't belong to them,, should try some booby traps here as well..

    The way to go !
    Worked wonders for us keeping the theivin buggers away from our stores compound in Peru !
    Had blasting detonators buried a couple of inches below the surface wired up to pressure pads made from keys from an old computer keyboard, bits of plywood and AAA Duracell batteries! ( pads and dets were a couple of yards apart so no injuries just a change of underwear needed !)
    A couple of nights of loud bangs and no more night visitors !
    Only problem was when we moved the compound and 'Ahem!' had forgotten where we had set them.
    A few circuits of the general area with a D6 CAT found them soon enough!
