Crime Fighting Mom Strikes Again

-
(KOB) An Albuquerque mother has been reunited with her stolen car after hundreds of people shared her photo on Facebook.

But this wasn't just any car--it was the same vehicle Melissa Torrez used to chase down a man kidnapping her 4-year-old daughter just two months ago.

Torrez said she was leaving a park with some friends near Coors and I-40 when three men walked up and demanded they give them their wallets, phones and keys.

"One of them told us everything would be fine, I was like, how is everything fine if you have us at gunpoint?" she said.

Torrez handed over the keys to her Chrysler 300, but wasn't going to let them walk away. After speaking with KOB Eyewitness News 4, she took to social media to catch the culprits.
