A Detroit woman confronted the man who stole her Mercedes Benz Wednesday after tracking her vehicle throughout the city.
For two days, Bianca Chambers tracked her car using social media tips before finding it parked outside of a barbershop. Rather than wait for the police to arrive and risk losing the thief, she decided to confront the man herself.
“I slashed all the tires and I thought that he was gonna take off and I didn’t know how long it was going to take for the police to pull up. And I refused to let him pull off again,” she said.
After entering the establishment, she asked the man if the Mercedes outside was his. When he tried denying it, he was physically taken down by customers at the shop and dragged outside by his dreads. Chambers documented the whole exchange on Facebook Live. After apprehending the suspect, she slashed her own tires to prevent the car thief from escaping and taking off.
When speaking to news reporters, Chambers said the thief rode all over town and even stopped at the strip mall where she owns a boutique. The suspect even got her vehicle detailed.
“They was driving, they was having a good time,” she said. “They was smoking but, yes, when I got my car, it was very clean…You’re just the dumbest criminal, that’s all. You’re joyriding in my car like nobody was going to see.”
The thief reportedly has a history of car thefts dating back to since he was a teen.
