NOEL KING, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Noel King, with the story of a Missouri woman who refused to be a victim. Danielle Reno's car was stolen, along with her credit cards and her phone, which were inside. She called the police, but she also tracked the thief by watching where her cards and phone were being used. Following a tip from a gas station attendant, Reno headed to Applebee's. She snuck into the parking lot, stole her car back, then called the police, who I imagine were pretty impressed. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
