A man in Newfoundland, Canada, used an online classifieds site to catch a thief. CITYNEWS reports that the unidentified man posted an ad on Kijiji asking for the 30 sheets of plywood that were allegedly stolen from his construction site on Sunday. In addition to the return of his plywood, the man asked for a written apology from the thief.


The ad — which has been removed — said the culprit did not seem to notice that he had backed the license plate of his blue Ford F-150 right in front of a hidden camera and then looked directly into the lens of the camera.

Also, it says a woman in the vehicle shouted out his name several times apparently trying to alert him to passing traffic.

CITYNEWS did not reveal whether the man got his plywood back.
