Bemused but doubting that what he had seen could indeed be his own front door, the man continued on his way.
But as he approached his home and was confronted with a gaping doorway, he realized that it must have been his door that he had seen travelling past at speed.
After quickly inspecting the doorway, the man legged it back to his vehicle and started tracking the other car. He was soon in hot pursuit, while at the same time calling the police to ask for their assistance in stopping the car.
Officers finally caught up with the door thief on the motorway, and it didn't take them long to identify the door as the one from the man's house, according to the paper.
The police and the door thief returned to the house, where the culprit was made to assist the others in putting the door back in its rightful place.
The apprehended man is now under suspicion for door theft, according to the paper.
