CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Mo. (CNN/KSPR) - Authorities used a cellphone to track down a man accused of leading them on a high speed chase in an 18-wheeler.
Springfield, Mo. police just released this dash cam video showing the pursuit.
Officers attempted to pull the man over after catching him driving erratically last month. But when they did, they say the semi-driver took off.
He eventually flipped the big rig and ran into the woods. Authorities had given up the search until, they say, the man used his cellphone. They found and arrested him.
The Missouri Highway Patrol says the driver likely tried to elude police because he's accused of stealing $700 worth of gas from a truck stop.
Some brazen thieves made off with a man's prized possession, and now the victim is hoping for some holiday justice. Little did the suspects' know, their entire crime was caught on camera.
