Mishawaka, Ind. Big Idea Company, a marketing and public relations firm in Mishawaka, would like whoever stole their snow shovel on Thanksgiving Day to return it.

The shovel caper was caught on video by a security camera inside the company's building at 3618 Grape Road.

A man can be seen walking up to the building and grabbing the shovel before driving off in a pickup truck. It all happened around 2:45 p.m. Thursday.

Big Idea Company released the following lighthearted statement and video in an email on Friday.

“This was our favorite shovel,” said Lou Pierce, President of Big Idea Company. “We’re shocked that this could happen in broad daylight, and we’re sharing this security camera video with the media in hopes that we can get our shovel back. If anyone knows the man in this video, please tell him that all we want is our shovel–we won’t press charges. Just give us our shovel back unharmed.”
