A 1969 Dodge Challenger (not the one shown here, it’s just as an example) was recently stolen in Phoenix, USA, but after a Facebook post spread the message of the theft, the thieves were soon apprehended and the car returned.

The owner of the Dodge Charger called Phoenix police after it was stolen, along with a GMC pickup truck and trailer. The owner of the vehicle’s luckily had surveillance cameras which captured the event to assist police in the recovery of both vehicles.

Although there was surveillance footage the vehicles were still missing, so the owner posted on Facebook in a hope to spread the message. Luckily, a local to the area spotted the vehicle, later identified as 43-year-old Geoffrey Lawrence Shea. The car was then tracked to a local parking lot where police were informed.

According to ABC57 news police then arrested Shea and his wife for vehicle theft and drug possession, then being held without bond as they were already on release from other charges. The two vehicles are now in the process of being returned to their rightful owners.

This is a great indication of how the spread of social media messages can really benefit, especially when your beloved muscle car is taken.
