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

The woman rented a black Nissan Sentra compact sedan from an Enterprise outlet, drove it to a Wal-Mart about two kilometres away and went shopping, explained the National Post.

Coincidentally, the man whose auto was stolen came into the same rental place a few days later and told the manager about how his vehicle had been stolen from the Wal Mart.

The woman rented a black Nissan Sentra in late June, according to police in Cornwall, a city of some 47,000 people in eastern Ontario.

It turns out the auto she thought was her rental was actually a 2015 black Infiniti QX50, a hatchback - which was obviously not the sedan she had originally rented.

Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air, but likely rebranded in a new way. The Blackmagic eGPU's Radeon Pro 580 has 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM and supports Apple's Metal 3D-accelerated graphics framework.

"We investigate stolen vehicles but this is definitely a unique situation for us", said Stephanie MacRae, communications coordinator with Cornwall Police.

He recounted his story to the manager, who thought nothing of it much until the woman returned with the QX50 two weeks later. The owner said he had ducked into Walmart and returned to find his vehicle missing from the parking lot, according to police.

Meanwhile, for the next two weeks, the woman, driving the Infiniti, trundled around the greater Cornwall area doing her thing, before returning the vehicle to the rental place. The mix-up happened after the female motorist accidentally got into a similar looking vehicle - a black Infiniti, after completing her shopping at Wal-Mart.

"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. Yes, the cops were involved, but luckily, they chose not to arrest or press charges against the woman. The manager looked at the Infiniti keys and told her that it wasn't the original auto she rented. Each vehicle was returned to its rightful owner. She informed the manager that she wasn't entirely happy with the auto. And she didn't realize her mistake for another two weeks. 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. Police stressed: "Never leave a key fob in a vehicle unless it's being driven".
