DIY crimebuster; RECORD VIEW.

THE police said "they would see what they could do" when Jamie Rooney's car was nicked.

Anyone who has heard these dreaded words after a housebreaking or a car theft knows exactly what they mean.

The police, with hundreds of other crimes to solve, will get round to it - but it's not going to be a priority.

But Jamie didn't just shrug and assume he'd never see the car again. He used social media to track down the culprit.

The result? Within 12 hours, he had located the stolen car and sent police to the exact address of the thief, who was then lifted.

If only Police Scotland had the same up-and-at-em attitude as Jamie, crime clear-up rates would be through the roof.
