Car theft foiled as owner rolls up on stolen car at stoplight

"I'm gonna git you sucka," is the first thing Ben Gaskill thought when he realized the car in front of him at a red light was his wife's 2005 Hyundai, reported stolen from the couple's driveway just days before.

Gaskill and his wife had just returned from a weekend away, when they noticed their Hyundai Sonata was gone. Someone had broken into their house and stolen a spare set of keys. But just a day later, as he was making a hardware-store run, Gaskill rolled right up on the car at a stoplight. He called 911 and waited until deputies arrived and arrested three 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old. They also found marijuana in the car.
