Cornwall woman takes auto for accidental, two-week joyride

"Shortly thereafter she exited, walked over to the area where she had parked her vehicle, saw a shiny black vehicle, hopped in it and drove away", he said.

Shortly afterwards, Cornwall police received a call from a man who left Walmart only to find his vehicle, a black Infiniti, missing from the parking lot.

After renting the auto, MacKay said the woman drove three or four minutes to the local Walmart where she did some grocery shopping.

In Cornwall, Ont., the where-the-hell-did-I-park scenario took on a odd and novel twist recently, after a black Nissan Infiniti, that was reported missing from a Walmart parking lot in late June, was found when a woman tried to return it to a local auto rental company.

It took the manager of the branch driving her to the Walmart parking lot where her rental sat for her to see the accidental thief.

It was the manager at the auto rental company who finally pieced together what had happened. The man whose auto was stolen found the entire thing hilarious, and gave a healthy "chuckle" when his vehicle was returned to him.

Cardi B gives birth to daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus
In June, she told fans on Instagram she had married in secret because "there are moments that I want to keep for myself". Offset proposed publicly a month later so she could still have that "special moment that every girl dreams of".

While they described it as a "happy ending to a complicated auto rental", police cast the story as a broader warning over electronic key fobs. Since the rental vehicle used the same system she was none the wiser to the mixup and drove off on her merry way.

"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.

Upon returning the auto the woman explained her frustrations with the vehicle rental agency. The keys the woman had returned belonged to an Infiniti vehicle, not the Nissan she had rented. She also said there were papers in the glove compartment and a dirty ashtray, but it still wasn't enough to tip her off. "And she was giving the manager the business on renting her a dirty vehicle", MacKay said.

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

"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.

Soon after, police received a report about a black Nissan Infiniti that had been stolen in the same parking lot.
