A ​Woman Does Her Own Detective Work and Tracks Down the People Who Stole Her SUV

I know the police don’t really WANT us taking crime solving into our own hands, but it’s damn impressive when we do.  There’s a woman named Danielle Reno in Kansas City, Missouri.  And last Tuesday night, she stopped at a convenience store and left her SUV running.  She was only inside briefly, but three women stole her SUV and drove off.


Danielle filed a police report, but decided to also handle things herself.  Instead of canceling her credit cards that were in the SUV, she left them open, so she could monitor how the thieves were using them.


Over the course of the next two days, she monitored where the thieves were going.  Eventually, they used the cards at a gas station near Danielle’s house, and Danielle rushed there to ask for information.


A clerk said she heard the women talking about going to Applebee’s.  So Danielle headed to the Applebee’s nearby, sat down, and waited.  And eventually, the thieves drove up in her SUV and walked in.


Danielle stole back her SUV, then called the cops.  And she livestreamed all of it on Facebook.  (Warning:  There’s some profanity.)  The cops went to the Applebee’s, and the women were arrested.
