A DC Man Gathers His Friends to Reclaim His Stolen Automobile

What we have here is a viral TikTok video. A local man reports having his car taken. To find it, he follows its location using GPS. He and his pals track it down and retrieve it.

More than 1.5 million people have watched the video on the mobile app so far-

Police in Washington, DC, said they weren’t contacted until after the man had gotten his car back. On Friday, May 12, though, authorities reminded crime victims to dial 911 first.

Dr. Tod Burke, a cr!minologist, and a former police officer, say it’s prudent to have GPS trackers on your car, but it’s hazardous to go after it on your own without the help of the authorities.

The following buzz in Washington State recently needs updates:

“The most important part is safety,” Burke said. “You’re going to say I know where the vehicle is, but at the same time, you don’t know the persons who stole the vehicle. You don’t know if they’re armed, you don’t know if there’s more than one, and you’re putting yourself and others at great danger by retrieving that vehicle, thinking I know where it is. I will just get it.”

Shaw residents’ reaction to this footage’s presentation was decidedly varied. Some indicated there was no way they’d go looking for their car.
