The incident began when a woman of Tulsa, Oklahoma, called her mechanic to say that she has to cancel her appointment for car repairs because it was stolen.

The next day, while going for lunch, Joseph, Gabe and Kenneth of an auto shop called Svenskraft, spotted the woman’s car. They called their client and asked if she had her car back.

When she informed them that she does not have it, the driver began following the stolen car while one of the friends called police.

The female thief who was driving the car, began leading them on a 15 minute high-speed chase, but the mechanics did not give up until police arrived and arrested the suspect.

26-year-old Elizabeth Newton was arrested on charges of possessing a stolen car, speeding, driving with a suspended license, no insurance and resisting arrest.
