- A woman has recorded herself stealing back her stolen car
- She tracked the thieves for a few days and eventually caught up with them
- She recovered the car and the perpetrators were arrested
An American woman whose car was stolen at a petrol station became a detective overnight when she tracked down the thieves and filmed herself stealing her vehicle back.
Danielle Reno was able to hunt down the thugs by tracking the purchases they made from her debit card as well as using the GPS from her cellphone – both of which had been inside her stolen Toyota.
According to Newsweek, Danielle filed a police report before taking matters into her own hands.
An attendant at a petrol station told Danielle that the alleged thief was headed to a local restaurant so she decided to follow her. When the suspect went inside the restaurant, Danielle went to her car and took it back.
She took videos of the entire experience and uploaded them onto her Facebook account.
When police arrived on the scene, the suspected thief was arrested along with two others. They were still in possession of Danielle’s belongings. She caught their arrest on video.
Unfortunately, the thieves trashed her car to the point where she said she didn’t want to drive it again.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a vehicle was stolen in Auckland Park in Johannesburg and the video footage was shared via social media. Intelligence Bureau SA shared the video via their Facebook page on Thursday and it had a notable impact on people.
