Burglary Victim Finds Thief’s Cell Phone, Calls His Mom

What does justice look like? If you’re anything like burglary victim Eliza Webb, justice looks a lot like mom. Webb’s car was burgled along with several others in her neighborhood, and her running shoes and sunglasses were stolen. But the thief left behind one really important thing: His cell phone. So Webb looked through it and found the number for the 19-year-old thief’s mom (was it under MOMZ or BIRTH PERSON or something?), and gave her a ring.

“I said, ‘This is a very uncomfortable phone call to make. I have your son’s phone and I’m missing some things out of my car and I think they might be two related items,’ and she was devastated,” Webb told KOMO. Webb is hoping this taught the thief (and his accomplice) a Very Valuable Lesson. “Sometimes when you get shamed or told that you did something wrong by somebody else it can stick,” she said.

Webb and the thieves then came up with a plan: return all the stolen items in person and the cops wouldn’t be called. That’s certainly one way to solve a theft problem! I wonder if Webb and dick pic mom caller Sarah are friends? [KOMO News]
