TULSA — A couple's way of making a living was taken right from their driveway.

The power of community helped a local plumber get back in business.

Greg Floyd thought he would never see his truck again. He discovered it missing right before heading out to work.

"Somewhere between the hours of one o'clock and six o'clock this morning, my truck was broken into pretty quietly."

Floyd says they immediately filed a police report. Then, his wife took to social media.

Within a few hours, "three different phone calls all pinpointing where the guy was at. By the time I got to the third location, the police were calling me saying they apprehended him. The truck was there. Come to find out, another company that he had broken into a vehicle, those guys caught up with him and held him for the police. I've got, at anytime, anywhere from five to $7,000 worth of tools, anywhere from two to four thousand dollars worth of pipe, material, fittings."

Because of the ordeal, Floyd missed out on two jobs Friday, and will have to work extra Saturday.

The man police caught is Stephen Leibowitz.
