James Partin told KFOR he installed a game camera on his property to capture images of the feral hogs that are damaging his property.

In early June, two people with fishing poles were spotted, who apparently couldn’t pass up the chance for a new camera.

Although the camera was stolen, what the alleged thieves didn’t realize is that the camera is also synced up with Partin’s phone.

The motion activated camera was sending pictures of the alleged thief to Partin’s phone.

“Funny thing is, they just don’t know, but it’s still getting pictures of them,” Partin said.

Officials say the game camera is now back in the hands of the rightful owner.

It was anonymously dropped of at the Luther Police Department following KFOR’s story.
