Ontario woman accidentally steals auto she mistook for her rental

Ontario woman accidentally steals auto she mistook for her rental

In late June, the unnamed woman rented a black Nissan Sentra from a company in Cornwall, Ontario in Canada.

Coincidentally, the man whose auto was stolen came into the same rental place a few days later and told the manager about how his vehicle had been stolen from the Wal Mart.

The man, who had reported his auto stolen, had his vehicle returned to him.

It's awful to have your vehicle stolen in general but it's even worse when it's stolen by complete accident.

The first hint of the swap came last weekend, when she attempted to return the auto to the rental company.

The Manager said they don't rent these models, and together they went to the supermarket Parking lot, where he found the missing Nissan. Unfortunately, instead of her vehicle, she had gotten into another black auto. "You should never leave your key fob or keys in your vehicle - and always do not forget to lock your auto doors before walking away from your auto". She mistook the mans 2015 Infiniti QX50 as her vehicle after doing her shopping and drove off.

"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", the Cornall Community Police Service said on its Facebook page.

The keys she turned in belonged to a Nissan Infiniti rather than a Sentra, leaving the manager "slightly confused", said police.

That car's owner had also been shopping in Walmart before realising his vehicle had vanished. Yes, the cops were involved, but luckily, they chose not to arrest or press charges against the woman.

An elderly woman confused her rental with the man's auto in a parking lot and stole the vehicle it for two whole weeks.

The pair returned to the Walmart parking lot, and the woman took the manager to the spot where she had parked her rental auto - only to find it still sitting there as she had left it.

The woman contacted police and explained how she had accidentally taken an Infinity and driven around in it for two weeks. I was embarrassed", while another added: "So both of them left their auto unlocked and keys in it?

Following the comical situation, police warned drivers to not to leave key fobs in their cars, because you never know who might take it. The manager then called the police.
