Illustration Sunday: Backhoe Bandit

2008_02_17_IS_BACKHOE.jpg
In what may be the most surreal chase in Toronto history, a snowplow driver slowly pursued a stolen backhoe through the snowy streets early Wednesday morning. The thief, later apprehended, had used the backhoe to remove a change machine fastened to the wall in a local car wash. This unusual sight attracted the interest of the plow operator, who notified police and gave chase.
