Local Food Blogger Seasons Package Thief With Bear Spray

In what could be San Francisco's closest real-life adaptation of Kill Bill, “Professional Food Pornographer” Sonya Yu made a citizen's arrest of a suspected serial package thief in Noe Valley earlier today after catching him in the act.  How?  Because of Noe Valley's proximity to The Castro, residents keep an ample supply of bear spray handy.  And swords.  Japanese bokkens, to be exact—and she wasn't afraid to use them.

According to Sonya's fiance, through Noe Valley SF, the couple laid out a bear trap, complete with a motion-activated video camera and a fake package (aka “bait”) left out to be stolen.  For our benefit, Sonya livetweeted the whole ordeal, from setup to arrest:

Now that the trap is set up, time to take a break for some humdrum daytime activities:

But that didn't last for long:

She seriously must of fucked up his world, because…

No pain, no gain:

And with a little aid from schadenfreude:

Finally, for some home defense tips:

And scene:

Her entire play-by-play is practically a lifetime of Tweets, so do read them for additional gems.  Unfortunately, she didn't end up mutilating his junk.

GOD BLESS SONYA! she rocks. She shows that regular people can stand up to these assholes and kick ass. Seriously, no joke. I wish more people would not puss out and let the criminals win the way Campos and Avalos get a boner from. Better to beat down the criminal and make him (and come on it’s mostly a boy) to get the serious beatdown HE DESERVES!!!

Oh please. This is so small potatoes. The SFPD has more important detectivating to to, setting up complicated sting operations to nail the violent stop sign running cyclists in the Haight.

Sounds like the guy got what he deserved. Hopefully this won’t come back on Sonya.

The fiancé’s blog said they removed the video because the media was hounding them, even camping in front of the house. Wish I had seen it though!
