Man's Car Stolen But He Gets It Back Four And A Half Hours Later

This is the timeline of a man having his car stolen and getting it back - all in the space of around four and a half hours. Oh and he had some free petrol:

Keane Standish, 25, realised his car had gone missing when he left his house on Sunday 14 March, but believes it was taken on the Saturday.

All thanks to a tracker app that came with his Jaguar, Keane managed to get it back within the same day.

Filming the entire pursuit on TikTok, Keane, from Manchester, said: "So I went out this morning to realise my car's been stolen went I went out to post something. It turns out the people that stole it, stole the wrong car because mine's got an app that tracks it's location and it's just pinged now.

"So the police are aware and that's where I'm heading now. Absolute spoons."

After getting to the initial spot, it soon became apparent that the car had been moved and Keane was back on the move.

He went on to add: "So they weren't at the first location but they've just stopped the car again," he then added: "They've cornered themselves in a car park now."

This is when Keane noticed that his registration plates had been changed and when it came to climbing in his car, he claimed it stunk of weed.

The thieves had nicely given the car a good clean but the only downside - all his sunglasses had been nicked.

Keane, who works as a robotics engineer, told LADbible: "Literally came out about 1pm, realised it wasn't there, and by half 5ish had it back.

"I thought the app wasn't working because it just showed it at the front of my house, but it only shows the journey so the location won't come up until the car stops.

"For some reason I clicked back on the app and it showed a location. Then they must have left the location and that's when I pinged again at a car park tucked in the corner between cars and the licence plates changed.

"The car was seen by CSI the next day and insurance took the car away to assess damages and cause. It's gone now."

Since posting the video on TikTok, it's been watched over 560,000 times with more than 68,000 likes.

LADbible has contacted Greater Manchester Police for comment.
