Not trespassing. Unless another test has been met such as property damage, theft, interference with business activities, etc. you don’t get to detain people for simple trespass. You ask them to leave. If they refuse then you call the cops.

ok… but just for arguments sake, if you find people in your yard and do not know if your home has been burglarized or loved ones within harmed, can you not detain them until backup, police, whatever arrives and sorts things out?
