Girl takes matters into her own hands and tracks down thieves after bag is stolen

People are flooding to social media in stitches after a girl went on a mission to track down the thieves who stole her bag.

After watching epic detective series like Luther, Sherlock or Line of Duty, who wouldn't want to star in their own Dr Watson and Sherlock Holmes scenario?

Prepare for a rollercoaster of a ride:

For one unlucky - or you could say lucky - girl and her friend, they were able to don their metaphorical Deerstalker hats when they found themselves in the middle of a whodunit after one of their bags was stolen.

TikToker Jessica Elle Lamb recorded the exciting - and slightly dangerous, so don't try this at home and all that - expedition to find the bag, uncover the criminals and hand them over to the police.

The video reveals the highs and lows of walking in the footsteps of the likes of Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple as the pair figure out who stole the bag out of Jess' house.

Taking matters into their own hands, Jess' friend narrates how the pair 'stormed up and down Brunswick Street' looking through the bins to try and locate the bag.

The quick-thinking duo then manage to get their hands on CCTV footage which reveals what the perpetrators look like.

Jess' friend says: "From then on, we had their faces and the game was afoot."

After cancelling Jess' cards and a quick cuddle with her friend's dog Alfie, the pair decide to get in the car and drive around to look for the culprits themselves.

Alongside a quick interlude of singing to Ed Sheeran, munching on some mochi and banging out a funeral playlist, the pair end up walking along Victoria Street where they catch sight of who they believe to be the bag-stealers.

The video reveals Jess then rung the police who allegedly caught the thieves, before the detective duo celebrate by cracking open a bottle of wine. All in a day's work, eh?

Viewers of the TikTok have since flooded to the post in stitches over the friends' efforts to retrieve the bag.

One said: "I can’t believe you found them."

"Idk how I found this TikTok but went hard hahah 11/10" another commented.

A third wrote: "Okay but I’m dying to know what happened when the cops rocked up."

A final resolved: "This is so chaotic but living for it."
