Woman accidentally stole vehicle, kept it for two weeks

Woman accidentally stole vehicle, kept it for two weeks Woman accidentally stole vehicle, kept it for two weeks

When the woman left the store, instead of returning to the Nissan, she entered a black Infiniti QX50 that was parked in the store's lot and took off.

Police say both cars used fobs, which means they don't require a key to start the auto and it turned out the owner of the stolen Infiniti had left his key fob inside the vehicle. She then drove that vehicle to a nearby Walmart to do some shopping.

The woman rented a black Nissan Sentra compact sedan from an Enterprise outlet, drove it to a Wal-Mart about two kilometres away and went shopping, explained the National Post.

Both vehicles used a keyless entry remote, similar to this one.

The stolen vehicle was a 2015 black Infiniti QX50, but the woman didn't notice it wasn't the sedan she had rented.

The woman then proceeded to drive the vehicle around for a full two weeks, using the Infiniti for her regular activities.

While they described it as a "happy ending to a complicated auto rental", police cast the story as a broader warning over electronic key fobs. After all, she had no inkling she'd stolen the auto she was driving.

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.

It was the manager at the auto rental company who finally pieced together what had happened.

The first clue something was wrong came when she went to return the vehicle to the rental agency.

"We investigate stolen vehicles but this is definitely a unique situation for us", said Stephanie MacRae, communications coordinator with Cornwall Police.

And it wasn't until this past weekend when the woman returned the vehicle to the same auto rental company that the manager pieced the entire situation together and realized what had happened. There were papers in the glove box and cigarette butts in the ashtray, and even a set of golf clubs in the trunk. "And she was giving the manager the business on renting her a dirty vehicle", MacKay said.

The manager called the cops, but MacKay refused to arrest the woman.

The woman was then brought to the Walmart parking lot, where the vehicle she had actually rented was still parked.

And that's not even where the story ends.

The Infiniti's owner reported his SUV stolen and not long after showed up to the same Enterprise to rent a loaner to replace it temporarily.
