Chambers drove around the city of Detroit for two days to locate her car. Even though she could track it down four times and call the police to report the discovery, she could not recover it as the police would arrive too late, and the suspect would have driven away with the car.

On one occasion, she saw it parked at a strip mall where she owns a boutique, but the suspect had already driven away by the time the police arrived. So, she came up with another plan.

For the fifth time, she spotted her vehicle parked at a barbershop. Resolved to get her car back, she went into the barbershop and came face-to-face with the man she believed stole her Benz.

Chambers confronted the 19-year-old suspect, Michael Tolbert, asking him, "Excuse me, you got the Benz out there?" The reply he gave was enough to set Chambers off.

In the next moment, Chambers had pulled the unsuspecting suspect out of the barber chair and began to drag him out of the shop by his dreadlocks.

With the assistance of several witnesses, she made a citizen's arrest while waiting for the authorities to arrive. To make sure the culprit could not escape, she also slashed her own tires - all four of them.

Chambers says it is only "the dumbest criminal" that will drive a stolen vehicle in broad daylight.

The culprit, Tolbert, apparently has a history of stealing cars and breaking into vehicles. In this case regarding Chambers' car, he was charged with receiving and concealing stolen property worth $20,000 or more.
