A local television news crew in New Mexico became the story when someone stole the station’s SUV as staffers gathered footage for a segment on crime in the area.

“We were doing a story about those concerns, and the city’s response to those concerns when, ironically, we became victims of crime ourselves in exactly the area they’re talking about,” said KOB news director Michelle Donaldson.

A GPS device on the vehicle led to its recovery a short time later, though it had been damaged and the thief was no longer on the scene.
