Woman matches with both thief and his victim on Tinder, solves case


It’s a well-known fact that dating apps can be misleading many a time. You may match to a guy with a decent profile but it might just turn out to be a disaster in real life. Something quite weird happened to a woman on a dating website.


Some users have even been duped of money and jewellery after they went on dates. Yet, dating apps are used by millions of people.

But dating apps can sometimes lead to positive changes. In the case of Emily Crohan, a crime was solved after she matched with a thief on Tinder.

This is what happened to Emily Cochran when she started chatting with someone on Tinder who had unfortunately lost an entire crate of La Croix – a brand of flavoured sparkling water – they just bought.

In a very bizarre turn of events, she also matched with the sparkling water thief and was able to reunite the goods with their rightful owner.

Here’s how the conversation happened.

Emily matched with a man who had unfortunately lost an entire crate of flavoured sparkling water. But she also matched the thief who stole the sparkling water and was able to ‘reunite the goods with the rightful owner’.

The first guy she matched was called Drew. He told Emily that he was having a good day as he had found a crate full of La Croix sparkling water. A few minutes later, Emily matched Raymond who was having a bad day. He had bought a crate of La Croix but it was stolen after he left it unattended for a few minutes.

Emily then decided to put the two conversations together and share it on social media.

Later, she put the two men in touch and the crate of La Croix was returned to its owner.

Emily also shared a video on Twitter which featured pictures and videos of the two men meeting and sharing a drink.

Needless to say, the very millennial coincidental exchange captivated people on Twitter, as Emily’s post was shared 236,000 times. It has now gone viral with over 82,000 retweets and 4 lakh reactions. People on Twitter divided themselves into team Raymond and team Drew.
