IPSWICH: A former soldier turned detective to track down his stolen car - and even stole it back.

Today Roan Webb's Peugeot 406 is back where it belongs after he launched his own investigation by sending out a text to everyone in his address book telling them of the theft.

A frantic text trail ensued as friends spotted the car around the town and Mr Webb embarked on the chase to recover the vehicle.

But each time the chase resulted in a dead end until the early hours of one October morning when his luck turned.
