The Worthington Division of Police was dispatched to the first block of West North Street at 9:33 a.m. April 9 on the report of someone's vehicle left in a driveway sometime overnight, preventing a resident from leaving. 

Upon running the plates, officers found the plates belonged to a different vehicle.

Officers acquired a phone number for the plates' owner and drove to the owner's home. Police said the owner informed them she did not notice the plate had been removed from her vehicle. 

Officers then removed the plates from the car in the driveway because it had been reported stolen and identified an owner for the vehicle but were unsuccessful in reaching the owner. 

The car was impounded.
