Woman accidentally steals vehicle for two weeks

Adjust Comment Print

A woman was in need of a vehicle and rented a black Nissan Sentra from an Enterprise Rent-A-Car center in Cornwall.

A CANADIAN woman "stole" a complete stranger's auto following an nearly unbelievable carpark stuff-up.

After leaving the store, the woman got into a vehicle that resembled her new rental, however she got into a 2015 black Infiniti QX50. After contacting the police, it was confirmed that the Infiniti had indeed been listed as stolen. "The manager observed the vehicle and asked the woman where she got it", police added.

After the woman had finished her shopping, she returned to "her" auto, and used the vehicle for the next two weeks. The man whose auto was stolen found the entire thing hilarious, and gave a healthy "chuckle" when his vehicle was returned to him.

From there she headed to Walmart, where she did a little shopping before tracking down a black vehicle in the sea of cars parked outside.

But little did she know she was actually seated behind the wheel of someone else's auto.

Meanwhile, for the next two weeks, the woman, driving the Infiniti, trundled around the greater Cornwall area doing her thing, before returning the auto to the rental place. Each vehicle was returned to its rightful owner. The owner of the vehicle she drove away in had left his fob in the auto.

"Once inside, the woman spoke to the manager and commented about how unkept the inside of the vehicle was and the fact that there was a set of golf clubs in it as well", reads a Facebook post from the Cornwall police explaining the mixup. The woman, meanwhile, had unknowingly kept the keys to her rental.

A Cornwall woman will not face any charges after accidentally stealing a vehicle for two weeks. "You never know who might take it", police noted, according to MSN report.

The woman eventually retraced her steps, and she and manager found the rental vehicle right where she'd left it - in the Walmart parking lot.

Though police say there was a "happy and amusing ending to this story", they say it serves as a flawless reminder not to leave key fobs in unattended vehicles. Cue a phone call to police and, soon after, a happy reunion between a auto whose rightful owner believed it had been stolen, instead of borrowed by mistake.
