Chase ends with recovery of SUV

BILOXI, Miss. —

Courtney Nixon Murray figured her SUV was gone for good after it was stolen from her home Tuesday.
 
Then she spotted it at a red light at Mississippi Highway 67 as she and her sister were headed to a movie.
 
Murray tells the Sun Herald that she recognized her 2004 Cadillac Escalade from the dent in the driver-side door and the Grateful Dead decal on the back.
 
The sisters followed and Murray relayed information to authorities about where the SUV was.
 
The chase ended the SUV slid into a median.
 
Authorities say the driver and five passengers, all under 18, were arrested.
 
Murray says she learned two lessons — always trust in God to provide and never leave the doors unlocked with a spare key in the console.
