The insistent buzz of Annabelle Brett’s cell phone was enough to wake her up long before the work alarm dictated that week. The phone warned Ms. Brett of another alarm that went off below, that of a Tesla 3. Her $ 70,000 electric vehicle was locked in the garage of her Braddon apartment. “I went downstairs very quickly with my friend who lives with me and we found the car was gone,” said Ms. Brett. “You can always see exactly where my car is on my phone app, and you can see that it has driven away.” Brave, perhaps a little reckless, the couple chased the Tesla in a second vehicle and used the map in the Tesla’s phone app to meet the unsuspecting thieves at every turn. “I can actually mess with my car through the app, so I started playing around with the speed so they couldn’t go fast,” said Ms. Brett. Ms. Brett was on the trail of the Tesla and used her phone to beep the horn, roll the windows up and down, and call the police. Meanwhile, her vigilante managed to keep up with the compromised car as it drove down Henty Street. Perhaps terrified by the bells and whistles of the robot car and probably wishing they had stolen a Honda Civic, the thieves stopped the chase in a parking lot in Haig Park. Moments later, Ms. Brett and her driver pulled up on the street next to the parking lot, where they saw a second car pull up next to the Tesla. Once again, Ms. Brett’s phone was the best weapon against injustice. “I managed to film us when we arrived, film her in my car, and then film her driving away,” said Ms. Brett.

Ms. Brett said they immediately recognized the people involved. Police then viewed Tesla footage and surveillance footage from Ms. Brett’s apartment. “They called me 15 minutes after we left and said they had the guy in custody,” she said.

The insistent buzz of Annabelle Brett’s cell phone was enough to wake her up long before the work alarm dictated that week.

The phone warned Ms. Brett of another alarm that went down below, that of a Tesla 3. Her $ 70,000 electric vehicle was locked in the garage of her Braddon apartment.

“I went downstairs very quickly with my friend who lives with me and we found the car was gone,” said Ms. Brett.

“You can always see exactly where my car is on my phone app and you can see that it has driven away.”

Bravely, perhaps a little recklessly, the couple chased the Tesla in a second vehicle and used the map in the Tesla’s phone app to track down the unsuspecting thieves at every turn.

“I can actually mess with my car through the app, so I started playing around with the speed so they couldn’t go fast,” Ms. Brett said.

Ms. Brett was on the trail of the Tesla and used her phone to beep the horn, roll the windows up and down, and call the police.

Meanwhile, her vigilante managed to keep up with the compromised car as it drove down Henty Street.

Perhaps terrified by the bells and whistles of the robotic car and probably wishing they’d stolen a Honda Civic, the thieves stopped the chase in a parking lot in Haig Park.

Moments later, Ms. Brett and her driver pulled up on the street near the parking lot, where they saw a second car pull up next to the Tesla.

Once again, Ms. Brett’s phone was the best weapon against injustice.

“I managed to film us when we arrived, film her in my car, and then film her driving away,” said Ms. Brett.

An accomplice had hit the stolen vehicle and tried to help the driver evade the law in a getaway car, leaving the Tesla in the park.
