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

We go back to late June, when a woman hired a black Nissan Sentra from a auto rental company in the city of Cornwall.

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".

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

He had remembered the owner of the Infiniti, who also went to Enterprise to rent a auto, thinking his vehicle was in fact stolen.

"I strongly believe that today's hearing is just another victory notch in Putin's belt", he told members of the committees. Gowdy said, pointing out the pro-Hillary bias among other members of the investigative team who weren't booted from it.

Cornwall Constable Tommy McKay told the CBC: "My initial thought was, 'I'm going to have to find out where she got this vehicle from, or my God, how am I going to put cuffs on this elderly female'".

Not long afterwards, a black Nissan Infiniti, which had been parked in the same lot, was reported stolen to local police. She then drove that vehicle to a nearby Walmart to do some shopping. She informed the manager that she wasn't entirely happy with the vehicle. Each vehicle was returned to its rightful owner.

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.

"The woman spoke to the manager and commented about how unkept [sic] the inside of the vehicle was and the fact that there was a set of golf clubs in it as well", the post read.

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. Yes, the cops were involved, but luckily, they chose not to arrest or press charges against the woman. When they reached the Walmart parking lot, the rental auto was still sitting in the same spot where it had been parked two weeks before, police noted. And she didn't realize her mistake for another two weeks. MacRae says the owner of the Infiniti had left his key fob in the vehicle, and left the doors unlocked.

Following the comical situation, police warned drivers to not to leave key fobs in their cars, because you never know who might take it.

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