Mauro Egidi is a plumber in Bremerton near Seattle. He had just purchased $600 worth of new tools when a thief robbed his van on Sunday. That's not where the story ends, however.

Egidi reported the theft and had trouble sleeping that night he was so upset.

THE NEXT DAY he was at the job site when he had a strange feeling. He hid behind a shed and sure enough, the thief was back opening his work van door!

Egidi attacked him saying, "You're not going to go home today."

The thief, Timothy Johnson, attacked Egidi but the plumber won the fight and pinned him until police arrived. The detectives instantly recognized Johnson, saying he already had two felony warrants out for him!
