The officers tracked down the owners and received permission to personally deliver the car and the dress back to them in time for the wedding.

"They didn't care about their belongings. There was other stuff missing from the vehicle, but as soon as she saw the wedding dress she was ecstatic, so it was a nice feeling. It was a nice end to a good story," said Sandoval.

The officers arrested the man driving the stolen car and discovered that he's a career criminal from the near west side.
