To try and find where the thief was, Reno re-activated her credit card and then checked to see where recent purchases had been made as well as using the GPS system on her mobile. Clever, eh?

Hot on the trail, Reno got a lucky break when a petrol station worker was able to tell her the suspects had mentioned they were going to a local Applebee's to eat.

Speaking to local news channel KCTV, Reno said: "We stalked this lady for 48 hours. She had no idea what we were doing."

Reno headed for the Applebee's and waited - within just a few minutes, the woman walked in.

"We got out waters and she walked in the door. I about had a heart attack," the amateur sleuth told the news outlet.
