Twitter Leads Cops to Stolen Car

Well played, SPD. I guess your Twitter/auto theft thingie wasn’t as terrible an idea as I made it out to be:

The Seattle Police twitter account getyourcarback has yielded its first stolen car recovery.  On December 14th at 7:23 p.m. the Seattle Police 911 Center received a telephone call from a woman who indicated that a previously tweeted stolen Honda Civic was in the 1900 block of 2nd Avenue NW.  A patrol officer was dispatched to that location and recovered the car and notified the owner.
