Neighbor gets snowy revenge on shovel thief

February 8, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
An Illinois man got sweet revenge after a woman stole his snow shovel.

During the last storm in Chicago, the woman stole the shovel to dig out her car, and it was all caught on tape.

David Wells owns a technology business and had cameras everywhere around his house and was able to find out who the thief was.

The woman never returned the shovel so it was time for payback. He buried her car.

"I got a little, I guess, passive aggressive, and I got a new snow blower so I was kind of excited to bury her car," said Wells.

It took the woman four hours to brush off all of the snow.

Wells said it felt good to watch her work and he posted the struggle on YouTube as revenge.
