Woman Mistakenly Steals Car She Thought Was Her Rental - For Two Weeks

Shortly afterwards, Cornwall police received a call from a man who left Walmart only to find his auto, a black Infiniti, missing from the parking lot. The keys the woman had returned belonged to an Infiniti vehicle, not the Nissan she had rented. Shortly after, she returned to the parking lot, got into a black vehicle and headed home.

After the woman had finished her shopping, she returned to "her" auto, and used the vehicle for the next two weeks.

That's when the manager connected the dots and realized the auto she had returned belonged to an older gentleman who, 2 weeks earlier, had come in to rent a vehicle after his had been stolen - you guessed it - from the Walmart parking lot.

The saga began this past June when a woman from Cornwall, ON, which is about an hour west of Montreal, rented a black Nissan Sentra from a auto rental company.

The woman recalled that she had picked the vehicle from the Walmart parking lot. After all, she had no inkling she'd stolen the vehicle she was driving.

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

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. There were papers in the glove box and cigarette butts in the ashtray, and even a set of golf clubs in the trunk. "And she was giving the manager the business on renting her a dirty vehicle", MacKay said.

By now the manager was "slightly confused", police say. It was only when she complained about the vehicle's unkempt interior as well as the fact there was a set of golf clubs inside the auto that things became a little clearer.

None of this tipped her off, until the manager drove with her over to the Walmart parking lot where the Nissan she had rented was still parked.

The manager and the woman, who police say was a "wee bit embarrassed" by this point, contacted police. The man whose vehicle she took, however, was much more jovial about the whole situation, and "had a good chuckle", MacKay added. There sat the Nissan Sentra, exactly where the woman had parked it two weeks earlier. After they realized what had happened, the first thing they did was call the police.
