CHICAGO -- A Chicago man's icy revenge continued to pick up YouTube hits Monday after he posted a video that shows his neighbor stealing his shovel -- and himself burying her car in snow.
David Welles discovered his shovel was missing after he went outside to build an igloo with his two-year-old daughter, he told WGN-TV in an interview.
He then checked surveillance footage from cameras set up around his property to see if he could identify the culprit.
The video, which he posted on YouTube, shows one of his neighbors letting her dog relieve itself on Welles' property before snatching the shovel to dig her nearby car out of the snow dumped by last week's massive storm.
Welles said he would have gladly let the woman borrow his shovel if she had only asked or at least returned it, but the theft infuriated him.
"I got a little … passive aggressive" he told WGN.
The rest of the video shows Welles using a snow blower to rebury the woman's car.
His surveillance cameras also captured the neighbor return to her vehicle to dig out her car once again, this time with a broom, which took her four hours.
