It's the second vehicle the dealership, which opened in 2015 as as the 11th Basil family dealership, has reported stolen in the last six months, Niagara Falls Police Capt.

"This is not the first time that this has happened and this has been an ongoing issue for the past few months," the police report cites Basil Ford's sales manager as saying.

Is a conscientious car thief operating in Niagara Falls? Perhaps a forgetful one at that? Or did he or she like the Taurus so much they couldn't bear to return it? We probably won't know until the thief is caught.
