A woman found a stolen car faster than the policeJuly 22, 2019
Daniel Reno from the city of Kansas City stopped at a local gas station QuikTrip to go into the bathroom with the baby, but when she got back, her Toyota disappeared. But the woman did not despair and independently tracked down the hijackers!
Reno was in the toilet with a small child just a few minutes, but the hijackers turned out to be more than enough. When she went out, her Toyota 4Runner was already rushing somewhere in an unknown direction, because the woman did not even turn off the engine of an SUV and did not remove the key from the ignition switch. Outside, there was a heat of 30 degrees and the sun was shining, so Daniel did not want the salon to warm up. But even worse, in the stolen car there was a bag with a phone, a purse, credit cards and other personal belongings. Calling from the gas station to the police and driving home by taxi, Reno did not sit by the phone waiting for a call from the police. She cooperated with her sister and decided to independently track down the hijackers and return her beloved Toyota. The woman did not block her credit cards and it worked – she soon started receiving notifications on card transactions in an online bank: thieves regularly bought fast food at Taco Bell, products at Walmart and loaded an SUV on QuikTrip.
Continuing to track payments, Renault and her sister followed in the footsteps of the hijackers, trying to find at least some kind of clue. Fortunately, they were lucky: just at the last gas station, the cashier recalled that three women had recently refueled a suitable description of the Toyota 4Runner, who discussed among themselves that they would go to dinner at the local Applebee’s restaurant in the evening. Daniel and her sister found him, called the police and waited nearby. The hijackers did arrive soon for dinner and were immediately seized – one of the women was carrying a bag, a telephone, and Reno’s shoes. For two days, they had time to order a littering at Toyota: the hostess said that the cabin smells bad and there are a lot of food and drink stains on the seats. The police, by the way, did not particularly appreciate the deed of the owner of the SUV and told reporters that they do not advise anyone to repeat her feat, because the woman at the same time exposed herself to grave danger. But generously allowed Daniel to keep a pack of beer, which the hijackers put in a child seat.
