This guy caught some rays this holiday weekend. Then, he caught some surprising thieves red, white and blue-handed.

This man was at the beach with his kids when he stumbled upon two middle-aged women trying to steal his canopy. They tried to play dumb, but he coolly let them know that they were fleecing his property.

And just for good measure, one of the women shows her temper (beware of the NSFW language) when she's had enough of the man recording because, you know, it's just not good form to document a thief at work.

Really, the nerve of the guy recording these bandits, right? Maybe next time he'll take thieves' rights into consideration when they're hard at work taking property that doesn't belong to them.
