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

The woman pointed out the area she had parked in, only to find the black Nissan Sentra still sitting there. After all, she had no inkling she'd stolen the auto she was driving.

After leaving the store, the woman got into a vehicle that resembled her new rental, however she got into a 2015 black Infiniti QX50.

By coincidence, the owner of Infinity has left its mark in the vehicle.

"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.

The Infiniti owner came out and found his auto missing so he reported it stolen.

Police in Canada are reminding drivers not to leave electronic key fobs sitting in unattended vehicles, after a woman in Ontario accidentally stole a auto for two weeks having mistaken it for her rental auto. Shopping, she got into a shiny black auto and drove away, not knowing that it's someone else's vehicle.

When she exited with her groceries, she loaded them into a vehicle that wasn't her rental. So the woman managed to start the vehicle and leave, not noticing the trick. "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. The keys the woman had returned belonged to an Infiniti vehicle, not the Nissan she had rented. "The woman was not impressed and handed over the keys".

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

And so began the sleuthing, as the vehicle rental manager and the embarrassed renter started retracing her steps, beginning in the Walmart parking lot. For two weeks, this woman drove around in another person's vehicle. I was embarrassed", while another added: "So both of them left their vehicle unlocked and keys in it?

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. After they realized what had happened, the first thing they did was call the police.
