Woman Mistakenly Steals Car She Thought Was Her Rental - For Two Weeks

An Ontario Woman Stole A Car By Mistake And Didn’t Realize For 2 Weeks featured image

A woman in Cornwall went for a bit of an accidental joy ride after confusing another man's auto for her rental.

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

He had remembered the owner of the Infiniti, who also went to Enterprise to rent a auto, thinking his vehicle was in fact stolen. It was a black Infiniti QX50 instead.

Two weeks later, when the woman tried to return that very same vehicle, the manager clued in.

Since the Infiniti owner had reported his vehicle stolen, the police were able to track him down and return the auto.

It turned out that both vehicles were equipped with proximity keys, a convenience that allows owners to open doors, start the engine, and drive away without needing to take the keys out of one's pocket. "Once inside, the woman spoke to the manager and commented about how unkempt the inside of the vehicle was and the fact that there was a set of golf clubs in it as well", police said on Facebook.

Maybe the golf clubs in the trunk should have tipped her off, but an Ontario woman didn't realize she was driving a auto she'd accidentally stolen for two weeks. "The woman was not impressed and handed over the keys".

When the woman returned the auto to the rental agency they were confused when she handed over the Infiniti key.

None of this tipped her off, until the manager drove with her over to the Walmart parking lot where the Nissan she had rented was still parked.

When she exited with her groceries, she loaded them into a vehicle that wasn't her rental. I got into the auto and I noticed different objects on the dashboard, then I noticed I got into the wrong vehicle. And she didn't realize her mistake for another two weeks.

The woman - who police described as being "confused and a wee bit embarrassed herself" - contacted police, explaining that she had accidentally taken an Infinity and driven around in it for two weeks.

While they described it as a "happy ending to a complicated vehicle rental", police cast the story as a broader warning over electronic key fobs.
