A Saskatoon man who spotted his stolen car while riding to work by taxi succeeded in helping police get it back Sunday. 

It started at 6:40 a.m. CST in the 1000 block of Matheson Drive, when a man called police saying his car had just been stolen. He'd left it running and unlocked.

The owner then took a taxi to work. On the way, however, he spotted the stolen car being driven on Circle Drive.

The cabbie called police and then kept the stolen car in sight while police responded. The driver of the stolen car led police on a chase through the Stonebridge area and then into the city's east side.

The occupants eventually abandoned the car and took off on foot. Police used dogs to track the suspects and were able to apprehend them.

Two women, aged 17 and 19, will be in court this morning facing a variety of charges.
