Every day hundreds of people watch their favorite TV shows and say to themselves I wish I could be like that, well Justine Faeth made that a reality. The New York native took after her favorite show “Law & Order Special Victims Unit” and used some skills she had learned to catch a crook.
Faeth was at work when she saw a suspicious man walk into the office. She saw the man steal an employee’s purse, an iPod and a wallet. She also saw the man drink a cup of water and blow his nose before he left. Using the skills she had learned from Law & Order, she quickly collected and kept the items as evidence for police. Sure enough, the police were able to use the DNA samples taken from the cup and tissue to help track down the perpetrator.
Faeth has recently been seen on NBC’s today show along side Actress Mariska Hargitay, who plays a Law & Order detective. Faeth was praised for her quick thinking and there were even talks of her having a walk on roll in the show.
