(Newser) – A father-son duo caught an alleged thief on their property, tied him up, and left him bare-bottomed in the snow for police to pick up, CNews reports. The farmers had been victims of a string of fuel thefts. When they were notified of a suspicious truck on their land, the son confronted the driver, realized the truck he was in may have been stolen, and "jumped on the running board and held onto the steering wheel," he said.

Then he “reached in and grabbed the shift stick and held it in park,” added Kris Lynch. His father, Tim, got on board, too, and the two managed to dodge pry-bar attacks as “I got him in a headlock until Dad got the rope around his feet,” Kris noted. After binding his ankles they tied up his hands then dropped the man, wearing only pajama pants with “his bare ass hanging out," onto the ground. "We work with cattle," explained Tim of the tying method. "It works with them so we figured it would work with him."
