08 NEWS WEDNESDAY MARCH 19 2014 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Readers driven to help Michael Dents and Elle Konieczny's cars were stolen at the same time, bush-bashed, and then the pics ended up on the NT News Facebook page. They got both cars back and want to say thanks to everyone who assisted in retrieving their vehicles Picture: DANIEL HARTLEY-ALLEN TWO cars have been reunited with their owners after a reader sent photos of suspected stolen cars to the NT News. NT News Facebook fan Mitchell went for a bush ride and spotted a black Toyota Yaris bogged near Palmerston waste transfer station. After posting, receptionist owner Elle Konieczny came out of the woodwork. She had reported missing her car and the Holden Rodeo owned by her partner, roofer Michael Dent. They had left the keys on the veranda of their Driver home on Sunday night and woke up on Monday, March 17, to find the keys and cars gone. It was the worst 24th birthday present Ms Konieczny could have hoped for. But luckily, the Yaris showed up on the NT News Facebook page before noon, and the Rodeo at a unit block in nearby Woodroffe. It was pretty muddy, Ms Konieczny said of the Rodeo. I think they were riding the Yaris around on a flat tyre for a while and the rim is damaged. The police and everyone who helped out were very good. The Rodeos gearbox may have been damaged. Superintendent Daniel Shean said sharing some social media was advantageous for police work. Its an excellent tool, he said. Information can be disseminated to a wider audience. But he said there were disadvantages, such as vigilante groups. Actions taken against a person of interest can be detrimental to a police investigation, he said.
