Lightbulb Angry owner catches would-be Mercedes thief... with a forklift

Forklift operator foils Mercedes-Benz theft - Click above to watch video after the jump

Forget LoJack, your Viper alarm system and The Club, all you really need to nab would-be car thieves is a forklift. That was the preferred tool of one Norwegian man who was set on stopping a crook from pinching a Mercedes-Benz E-Class from the W210 generation. The man grabbed the Benz with his tractor-based forklift and raised the front end of the car off the ground, damaging his car in the process.

Must have been some good timing to catch the punk before he drove off. The police sure were nice about the whole thing. Hopefully the thief will have to pay for damages (Idiot should have run while he had the chance as opposed to just spinning the rear wheels .)

I think that that was the young guys car which is why he didn't run.

He was, it seems stealing stuff from the business, not stealing the car....so it seems.

Okay, that makes more sense. Otherwise, just blocking him in with the tractor would have seemed more logical.
