Beaches aren’t just for relaxing; they’re also ripe with petty crime.

That’s what happened this past Independence Day when a man on New Smyrna Beach in Florida confronted two older women who appeared to have stolen his family’s possessions.

In the YouTube video, which has received over five million views in two days, the man approaches the ladies who are in the midst of constructing what appears to be a canopy and offers his assistance.

At first, it seems friendly enough. They ask him if he knows how to build the beach tent, to which he responds he most certainly does.

“Yeah, this is our stuff...this is all ours,” he informs them when they start to protest in disbelief.

He continues to tell the alleged beach thieves that they have taken his family’s belongings, adding he’ll let it slide as long as they get away from his “s---.”

The end of the video is where the action really starts, however, when one of the ladies confronts him about his filming the confrontation.

“I’m going to get that camera and put it in the grass. You like that? Step back, stop it,” she says, lunging toward him before the video stops rolling.

According to My Fox Philly, police are not looking to press any charges for the incident, but confirmed the women could have faced potential charges of grand theft and battery.
