Stop Thief or I'll Pick You Up!

So what do you do when you see a thief breaking into your store? Why you chase him down with your tractor and leave him hanging in the air!

This video is in Norwegian but you should get the idea, no words really needed *NOTE: There are a few seconds of commercial before the video starts, and don't forget to come back here after you watch it.

Harald is a small business owner in Alta, Norway. Our family owns a small house nearby his store and know Harald quite well. When he saw that his store was being broken into, instead of waiting for the police to come he took matters in his own hands. Jumping into his tractor he caught the thief just as he was about to make his get away. Forklift ready and aimed, he scooped up the villain like a toy and held him in place until the police arrived. Now that's what I call a slow speed but effective game of chicken!

Have fun today everyone, and keep on the look out for those crazy stories. Have any of your friends done something crazy lately?

LOL I love this! I used to work at a travel store and we sold everything from luggage to books and maps. One day, I saw a suspicious guy come in and I discreetly followed him around. he picked up one of our duffel bags and proceeded to to snatch backpacks and other bags, stuffing them inside. I waited until he could not get another bag in there, then I stepped out and said "I can ring those up for you." He jumped a good three feet and ran out of the store.
