A Missouri woman with no experience in police work found the suspects who stole her car and stole it back, reported Monday.
Danielle Reno, a Kansas City resident, told KCTV5 that her Toyota 4Runner had been stolen while she was at a gas station with her daughter.
"I got out of my car, I caught my daughter and my car left," said Reno.
Reno filed a report with the authorities and then took charge, the channel reported.
In tracking purchases on her credit cards and the activity of her phone – which was in the stolen vehicle -, Reno said that she had managed to pin down the suspects.
"We followed this lady for 48 hours. She had no idea what we were doing, "Reno said.

A QuickTrip employee told Reno that car thieves were going to an Applebee, KCTV5 reported. At the restaurant, Reno said he saw one of the suspects enter with his wallet and keys.
"We had our waters and she went through the door," says Reno. "I had a heart attack."
Reno left the restaurant and took back his car. She told KCTV5 that the inside of the car had been beaten and she did not want to drive it anymore.
