(Scroll down for video) The owner of a convenience store in Toronto, Canada, appealed for help after squirrels raided his shop multiple times and stole candy bars.

The incident unfolded at the Luke's Grocery located at 635 Logan Avenue.

The store owner wrote about his ordeal on Reddit.

He said that he tends to leave the door open during the day because the shop gets stuffy and hot with all the coolers and fridges going off.

He simply can't afford to close the door and turn on the air condition because the electric bills are too high.

Over a period of two weeks, squirrels have been coming in when he was not looking, taking chocolate bars, and dashing off.

The squirrels take different bars each time. A couple of times, passersby and customers tried chasing them, but they were not successful in retrieving the stolen goods.

He tried calling animal services (311), but they only seem to be concerned about lost or dead animals and pets.

The store owner managed to record two squirrels stealing chocolate bars and uploaded the videos on YouTube, where they went viral.

(Scroll down for video) A stockbroker who was angry that his wife found out he was having an affair, decided to burn her alive, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Essex police said that the man who killed his wife and then attempted to burn their house down to cover up what he had done, has been convicted of murder.

According to the criminal complaint, 40-year-old Darren Byrne assaulted 35-year-old Maria Byrne, during an argument after she discovered that he had rekindled an affair with another woman.

He then set her on fire by using alcohol. He then turned on the gas in the kitchen of their home in Morgan Crescent. Darren then called police, claiming that he had come home from walking their dog to find her on fire in the kitchen.

When paramedics arrived, they found Maria lying on the floor with severe burns to her upper body and face. She was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Police then launched an investigation to establish how she died.

Darren told officers that they had spent the day together at home while their two young children were staying with grandparents.

He claimed to have then gone out at 2:40 p.m., to walk their dog and returned home at about 3:30 p.m. to the smell of gas and the smoke alarm ringing.

He told police that he found his wife in the kitchen and called for an ambulance. He was instructed to give her CPR until help arrived.

However, during the course of the investigation, officers discovered that Darren had an affair the previous summer.

When Maria found out, she no longer trusted him and would check on his whereabouts, and messages on his mobile phone and email.

She discovered that her husband had rekindled the affair on the day she was murdered. She learned that her husband had a second mobile phone, which he used to contact his mistress.

Darren was arrested after a post mortem examination showed an accelerant had been used and that Maria had been assaulted or restrained.

Surveillance videos also showed that he had walked their dog an hour earlier than he had claimed. Darren has not shown any remorse.

Maria’s mother Linda Biggs, described what Darren did to her daughter as "beyond any human comprehension.”

She said: "Eight years ago, we entrusted Maria, the most precious thing we had, to Darren. We loved him and treated him like our own son. This person, instead of loving and protecting her, took her life in the most degrading way.”

How to be a smart shopper and get discounts on your purchases

Shopping (illustration)
By: Michelle Parker WorldWideWeirdNews.com

We all work hard for our money and we want to spend it wisely.

Some people choose to buy off-brand products in order to save money.

However, if you are a smart shopper, then you can buy the brand name items for less.

Here are some tips on how to buy what you want, and pay the least possible.

Whether you are shopping for shoes, furniture,a mattress or a car, check prices on the Internet.

When you are in a store and you see an item you like, whip out your phone, go online and check prices on a few different websites.

One great place to check is a competitor's website.

Check the price on that particular item. If you find that item at a lower price, show it to the salesperson, and they will very likely meet or beat that price.

If they refuse to meet the price, at least you can go to the competitor or order it online to save money.

You can also check the company's suggested retail price and never pay more than that price. Most of the time, you can get the item for a price that is much lower than the suggested retail price.

Many stores will lower the price in order to make a sale, especially when they see that you are an educated consumer.

People often assume that department stores are less expensive than smaller and privately owned stores.

However, at the privately owned stores, you will likely get much better discounts during the season if you come prepared and you know the prices.

If you don’t find that particular product for a better price online, don’t hesitate to ask for a discount even if the item is already on sale.

Many retailers will give you a discount of a few percent just for having the courage to ask for it.
