Here's a handy tip: Never, never steal David Wells snow shovel. David Wells lives in Chicago and like everybody else got hit with a lot of snow, he also got hit by a shovel thief. And then, he got even. Let's go to the video tape.

Watch as this woman walks onto David Welles' property and hurries off with his snow shovel. The culprit then uses his shovel to dig her car out of the snow. She doesn't return the shovel.

After checking his security camera tapes Welles wasn't going to let the theft slide. So he used a snowblower to literally bury the woman's car under new mounds of snow.

The neighbor comes back, sees her buried car, and uses a broom to
sweep it off. Then Welles posted the video on Youtube.

Welles may have been the wrong person to pilfer from. He is a security company professional, and has a variety of security cameras around his home.
