Ontario Woman Drives Stolen Vehicle for 2 Weeks Thinking It's a Rental

The car that the woman originally rented was a Nissan Sentra sedan

According to the CBC, a the woman didn't realize the mistake until she tried to return the vehicle to rental service and the manager was able to put together what happened.

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.

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.

An elderly Canadian woman inadvertently stole a auto and kept it for two weeks in late June after mistaking it for the one she had just rented. After shopping, she hopped in a vehicle she thought was hers, started it up and drove away. 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.

"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.

"She drove around and did her daily business in this stolen vehicle for two weeks", MacKay said.

Upon returning the auto the woman explained her frustrations with the vehicle rental agency.

The woman took not only the vehicle, she also managed to take the golf clubs that the owner had been storing in the back.

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

When, dropping off the Infiniti at the Enterprise outlet, she complained to the rental manager about the messy interior and the clubs, he noted the key he'd given her didn't match the vehicle she'd returned. The owner said he had ducked into Walmart and returned to find his auto missing from the parking lot, according to police. They even tried to explain that the model she was trying to return wasn't on file but she apparently did not want to hear it.

"Once inside, the woman spoke to the manager and commented about how unkept the inside of the vehicle was and the fact that there was a set of golf clubs in it as well", reads a Facebook post from the Cornwall police explaining the mixup.

There were no official charges so this story has a happy ending.

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.
