(Scroll down for video) A Jewish business owner said that thieves stole his expensive truck and excavator, Eyewitness News ABC 7 reported.

The 63 foot tractor trailer along with the excavator were stolen on Tuesday night, in a wild and daring theft in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The thieves cut a fence and then just drove off, stopping traffic in the process. However, what the thieves didn’t know is that a surveillance camera from a cross the street caught the whole thing on camera.

Ari Steinman, the owner of the business said that the equipment is worth about $250,000. He also said that when he arrived on Wednesday morning, he could not believe that his giant pieces of equipment were gone.

On the video, a man can be seen using a power tool to cut through a lock. Sparks flew, but no one seemed to notice. Steinman said that he wants his truck and excavator back.
