A woman who calls 911 Sunday evening to review her swooping out of a parking space in Hammonds Plains, Nys, has not only got her vehicle back, it is returned with a full tank of gas.
RCMP said the woman told police that around 6:30 pm. She has parked her white Hyundai Santa Fe on Hammonds Plains Road at an identical vehicle and entered a business. When she came back she was gone.
It turns out the driver of the other SUV has gotten in and managed to drive away. He even filled it with gas before relieving his mistake. The "stolen" SUV is returned to the woman who reimburses the people to fill her tank.
RCMP Cpl. Dall Huckinson said police did not believe that the vehicle was left in the park. Several buttons start-up vehicles can be started without the Cable FOB actually in the vehicle.
"Both vehicles are identical to make and model, but one was in 2016, the other was a 2017," said Hutchinson.
"I think all of us have done it at one time or another … have gotten into a vehicle and realized that this is not my vehicle, and we climbed out before we actually drove off.
"But in this case he drove off, filled it full of gas, and then discovered the fact that it would not be and took it right back to the owner."
