ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque, New Mexico, woman says she took the law into her own hands to find her late husband’s stolen truck and help capture the alleged thief herself.
KOAT-TV reports (http://goo.gl/OcdeZy) Ana Dean boxed in the accused car thief Tuesday after driving around Albuquerque with her grandchildren in search of the stolen Ford F-150.
According to Dean, she loaded up her grandchildren, prayed that her husband’s spirit would lead them to the truck and found it in a parking lot.
Dean says after she entered the key code into the truck’s electronic lock, she used her own car to block the entrance to the parking lot and called 911.
Police arrived and arrested 25-year-old Jasen Mulvaney on a stolen vehicle charge.
It was not known if he had an attorney.
