Now this is one way to use a minivan!

Krystal Tukuafu has used her minivan to haul furniture and as a camper.

Now, Tukuafu can boast that she used her minivan to help a police officer chase down a shoplifting suspect and arrest him.

On Wednesday, Tukuafu was shopping with her 3-year-old son when she noticed an American Fork police officer running after a man. Tukuafu, who has about 1,000 followers on Instagram, began livestreaming the chase.

She followed the men for a while as the chase unfolded. But then, Tukuafu said she pulled next to the officer in a parking lot.

"I was like, 'Hey, you want a ride?' And he just yanked my door open, got in and was like, 'Follow this guy,'" she said.

I’m the coolest minivan owner ever!!!!! 👊🏽 catching bad guys by day and changing diapers at night! 😂 let’s just save this so my kids will always think I’m cool! lol
