An apparent case of grand theft auto had a quick and happy resolution in Portland, Maine.
On Tuesday night, Erin Hatzi's red Subarau was stolen right out of her driveway.
According to WCSH, surveillance video showed a woman calmly entering the vehicle and driving off a few minutes later.
Police were notified, but they didn't have to wait long to find the "thief."
A woman came forward the next day and explained the whole incident was just a misunderstanding.
The woman returned Hatzi's vehicle with a note and gas money:
Hello, So sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red Subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock and she came back with your car. I did not see the car until this morning and I said, 'that is not my car.' There is some cash for gas and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you. If you need to speak further, with me, I am ******* and my number is ..........So so sorry for this mistake.
Police explained that older model Subaru keys can sometimes work on different cars.
