(KFOR) Margaret McDonald routinely travels her Oklahoma City neighborhood in her power chair.
It can get going up to 4.2 miles an hour.
Not super fast, but on Sunday, it was enough to help police track down some burglars.
"I seen them coming out of the window and I thought, that's strange if they're carrying a big TV out the window," McDonald said. "I thought they lived there at first."
But McDonald quickly realized she'd interrupted a burglary in progress.
She said when the five suspects spotted her, they scattered and ran.
"I hollered, 'Stop thieves!' Like that," she said. "And that one went running down the road, so I followed him."
