Police in Canada are reminding drivers not to leave electronic key fobs sitting in unattended vehicles, after a woman in Ontario accidentally stole a car for two weeks having The owner said he had ducked into Walmart and returned to find his car missing from the parking lot , according to police.

It can happen out there, amid life’s hustle and bustle, when you are in a rush and your mind is in a million different places, and you park your car, for instance, in an underground parking lot, and return some time later, after running an errand, and realize you have no recollection as to where you actually parked the car in the first place.

In Cornwall, Ont., the where-the-hell-did-I-park scenario took on a strange 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 car rental company.

The woman, a local herself, wasn’t a repentant car thief, but merely confused and possibly in a rush on the day she rented a car — a black Nissan Sentra — and drove straight to Walmart to do a little shopping. Upon exiting the store, she climbed in a black Nissan — the vehicle was open and the key’s were in the ignition — and drove home. Soon after, a local man exited the store and began wandering about the parking lot in an increasing state of agitation, before concluding that his black Nissan Infiniti had been stolen, and calling police to report the theft.

Walmart Draws Fire From Third-Parties’ ‘Impeach 45’ T-Shirts

  Walmart Draws Fire From Third-Parties’ ‘Impeach 45’ T-Shirts Walmart Inc. is under fire after its website offered t-shirts from third-party sellers with “IMPEACH 45” emblazoned across the front in big capital letters -- a call to bring down the 45th U.S. president, Donald Trump. The shirts that come in several shades -- plus similar baby onesies and even frisbees -- have the Twitter-sphere in a frenzy and spurred a grassroots call to boycott the world’s biggest retailer. The hashtag #BoycottWalmart even began trending on Twitter.The t-shirts weren’t being sold by Walmart itself, but by third-party sellers including Old Glory and Teespring Inc.

A Minnesota man has been arrested after allegedly stealing a car from Walmart parking lot , then The woman who is the owner of the car apparently wanted to warm it up in the Monday night in frigid evening temperatures, but by the time she went to the Walmart parking lot , the vehicle was gone.

Meanwhile, for the next two weeks, the woman, driving the Infiniti, trundled around the greater Cornwall area doing her thing, before returning the car to the rental place. She informed the manager that she wasn’t entirely happy with the car. For one, it was messy when she picked it up — and there was a set of golf clubs in the trunk. The rental car manager examined the woman’s keys and noted that, in fact, she had rented a Nissan Sentra, while the keys in her possession belonged to a Nissan Infiniti.

And so began the sleuthing, as the car rental manager and the embarrassed renter started retracing her steps, beginning in the Walmart parking lot. There sat the Nissan Sentra, exactly where the woman had parked it two weeks earlier. Cue a phone call to police and, soon after, a happy reunion between a car whose rightful owner believed it had been stolen, instead of borrowed by mistake.

“This isn’t something you see everyday, but it is something that could happen,” said Stephanie MacRae, a spokesperson with the Cornwall Community Police Service. “You should never leave your key fob or keys in your vehicle — and always remember to lock your car doors before walking away from your car.”
