I'm telling you right now, if my car were ever stolen and I got the chance to steal it back... you better just step aside because some vigilante justice is about to go down.
And that's exactly what happened in Kansas City, MO. A woman had her vehicle stolen from a convenience store parking lot, reported the theft, and was told to basically sit back and let the cops do their jobs. But that's not what happened.
The owner's credit cards and money were in the vehicle at the time of the theft, so she could see where the thieves were going, based on where they tried to use her credit cards. The owner of the vehicle went to a gas station where the thieves had been, and the clerk there told the owner that the thieves had been talking about going to an Applebee's....so the owner went to the closest Applebee's and saw her car in the parking lot! She used a spare key to steal the car back, and then called the cops. The thieves were arrested while they were eating dinner, and this whole story is SO great!
I'm glad the owner got her vehicle back, and that those losers got arrested! Although, police warn that it's really dangerous to go after criminals yourself, and advise that people DON'T take the law into their own hands... But if I'm being honest, I think I would have done the exact same thing!
BONUS: the thieves had bought beer after the theft, which was in the car at the time the owner came and took her car back. So not only did she get her car, she got some free beer! WIN WIN!
The owner Facebook Live'd the moment she found her car. WARNING: LANGUAGE.
