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

The woman pointed out the area she had parked in, only to find the black Nissan Sentra still sitting there.

He said the woman - who won't face any charges - was a "bit embarrassed" but shrugged it off, and the man whose auto was stolen "had a good chuckle".

"In conversation with the manager of that establishment it came out that he was the owner of a black Infiniti that was recently stolen", MacKay said. Upon exiting the store, she climbed in a black Nissan - the vehicle was open and the key's were in the ignition - and drove home.

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 owner said he had ducked into Walmart and returned to find his vehicle missing from the parking lot, according to police.

A woman in Ontario accidentally stole a auto mistaking it for her rental vehicle and drove it around for two weeks before she realised the error. The photos above also show how the cars aren't exactly the same but both black and similar! The owner of the vehicle she drove away in had left his fob in the auto. She then drove to a nearby Walmart to do a spot of shopping, which is when she accidentally switched cars, leaving the rental and stealing someone else's ride.

"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 woman realised the error only when she attempted to return the auto to the rental company last weekend. Yes, the cops were involved, but luckily, they chose not to arrest or press charges against the woman.

Ontario Constable Tommy MacKay says the woman made the mistake shortly after picking up her rental, a Nissan Sentra and driving just down the road to a local Wal Mart. Each vehicle was returned to its rightful owner. "The manager observed the vehicle and asked the woman where she got it".

Police say that both of these cars use key fobs to unlock and start the vehicle. "You never know who might take it", police noted, according to MSN report.

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.
