WLOX Editorial: Woman turns tables on thief

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - In suburban New Orleans, on the the West bank of the Mississippi River in the town of Harvey, Louisiana, a woman done wrong turned the tables on a thief who stole her fanny pack, her driver's license, her sunglasses and her iPhone.

The victim was not willing let it go. She tracked her phone with an app to the thief's home and called police. Police found her stolen items and more. They found ecstasy, 21,700 dollars in cash and 27 firearms.

Congratulations to the victim for getting her stolen items back. And kudos to her for turning the tables and getting a suspected thief and drug dealer off the streets and in jail.That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
