    Shovel Bandit strikes Thanksgiving Day in quiet Indiana town


    Like Steve Mcqueen, he calmly pulled up in a car at 2:44 p.m. in front of a professional building in Mishawaka, IN on Thanksgiving Day (11-28-13), and with daring ease, walked right up to a very nice snow shovel, picked it up and stole it. The whole shocking incident was caught on camera and investigated by the fine Mishawaka Police Department. This was our favorite snow shovel. Falling victim to such a brazen act made us feel so helpless that we let the staff go early on Friday. We call this guy the Shovel Bandit because in the video, he saunters up like a movie star in broad daylight and probably had a cigarette in the car afterword. We’re sharing this security camera video with you in hopes that we can get our shovel back UNHARMED. If anyone knows the man in the video, please tell him that our only concern is for the shovel – we’re not pressing charges. Please release our shovel. Do not harm our shovel. It's been a good shovel. Treat it well.
