What recently was reported to Hilliard Division of Police as a stolen car actually was a repossession, investigators determined.
A man told police a 2016 sedan worth $18,000 was stolen between 7 p.m. Aug. 15 and 7 a.m. Aug. 16 while it was parked on the 5500 block of Medinah Drive.
It later was determined the vehicle had been repossessed, said police spokeswoman Andrea Litchfield.
When a vehicle is reported stolen, officers always ask whether the owner is up to date on payments, she said.
It is not uncommon for police to learn a vehicle was repossessed if payments were missed, Litchfield said.
