Fobbed off: woman accidentally steals car for two weeks after key mix-up

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

MacRae says it all started when the woman rented a black Nissan Sentra from the Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Cornwall on Saturday, June 23. Prior to that, in the Lvov area the man stole the bus.

According to Cornwall police, after renting the vehicle, the woman drove to a local Walmart where she did some grocery shopping.

"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. "The manager observed the vehicle and asked the woman where she got it", police added.

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 man whose vehicle was stolen came into the same Enterprise to rent a auto after realizing his vehicle was no longer in the Walmart parking lot. She mistook the mans 2015 Infiniti QX50 as her vehicle after doing her shopping and drove 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.


That car's owner had also been shopping in Walmart before realising his vehicle had vanished.

The woman drove the auto around for two weeks, then tried to return it to the rental vehicle company, police say. "The woman was not impressed and handed over the keys". Then the rental agent turned into an investigator and took her to retrace her steps, which first led them to the Walmart parking lot where they found the Nissan still parked. I got into the auto and I noticed different objects on the dashboard, then I noticed I got into the wrong vehicle. "She drove around and did her daily business in this stolen vehicle for two weeks", as Constable MacKay puts 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.

"The manager and the woman, who was now confused and a wee bit embarrassed herself, returned to the auto rental company and contacted police, providing the information for the Infiniti and what took place", the post stated.

Police say that both of these cars use key fobs to unlock and start the vehicle.
