  • The car that the woman originally rented was a Nissan Sentra sedan

A CANADIAN woman "stole" a complete stranger's auto following an nearly unbelievable carpark stuff-up. But a recent auto theft in Cornwall, Ontario, had everyone involved smiling in the end.

In late June, the unnamed woman rented a black Nissan Sentra from a company in Cornwall, Ontario in Canada. That same day, she proceeded to run some errands, including a run to the area Walmart to buy some food.

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

According to Constable Tommy MacKay, who was the one called to arrest the thief, once shopping was done, she simply went out into the parking lot, "saw a shiny black vehicle, hopped in it and drove away".

The woman didn't notice the apparent mixup.

Apparently, the Infiniti owner had left his key fob in the vehicle, so the door opened and she was able to start it.

The source with knowledge of the talks told CNN that Trump asked whether Kim knew where he'd gotten the nickname, and Kim said no. However, while the North's attitude may further impede the denuclearization talks, the regime is unlikely to boycott them.

The manager, who was obviously confused, examined the Infiniti keys, noting that they weren't the keys to the vehicle the woman had actually rented. Now needing a vehicle himself, he ventured to a auto rental shop - the very same Enterprise store as the woman had entered.

The first clue something was wrong came when she went to return the vehicle to the rental agency.

The woman complained to the manager about the upkeep of the vehicle.

"She was upset because the ashtray was dirty, there were papers in the glove box, and there were golf clubs in the back". "And she was giving the manager the business on renting her a dirty vehicle". That's when he remembered the older man.

Cornwall police say she drove the rented black Nissan Sentra sedan to a nearby Walmart to pick up some groceries, but upon exiting the store she got into a black Infiniti QX50 luxury SUV parked nearby instead. The woman was said to be embarrassed by what happened but is not facing any criminal charges. They even tried to explain that the model she was trying to return wasn't on file but she apparently did not want to hear it. And she didn't realize her mistake for another two weeks. According to police, she complained to the manager about the state of the vehicle, saying that the inside was poorly cleaned and that there was a set of golf clubs left in the auto.
