'I didn't think it would be this much of a success'

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Business is boom at Debra Trejo's clothing store, but not so long ago she was worried about going out of business after a series of break-ins.

"We would have a lot of break-ins. They'd be like once a month or once every two or three months," Trejo said. 

Then they cut the wires to her security system.

"They had all night to take everything so they took like $60,000 worth of merchandise," Trejo said, "and it took me like 3 years to replace all that."

Now Trejo is using a different tactic to deter crooks: A sign on the business offers a $10,000 reward to any law enforcement officer who shoots - and kills - burglars caught breaking into the store.

There haven't been any break-ins since.

"I didn't think it would be this much of a success," she said.
