CHICAGO, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A Chicago man who says his security camera recorded a neighbor stealing his snow shovel got his revenge by using his snowblower to bury the woman's car.

David Welles, who posted the video to YouTube, said it depicts his neighbor, a woman he does not know, walking through a gate, climbing his front steps and taking the snow shovel from his porch Thursday following the 20.2-inch snowfall that buried the area Tuesday and Wednesday, WBBM-AM, Chicago, reported Monday.

Welles said he was particularly upset by the theft because he had promised to finish building an igloo for his 2-year-old daughter, Mayson, WGN-TV, Chicago, reported.

The video next depicts Welles using his snowblower to bury the woman's car in snow and concludes with footage of the woman spending 4 hours clearing her car Friday morning.
