Capt. Keith Ingle, Ardmore Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, said detectives have recovered a 2003 Ford reported stolen Monday from the driveway of a residence located in the 1100 block of Burch Street. 

The male victim said he had left his car parked in the driveway and discovered it missing when he went to retrieve it. But, there’s more to the case than a simple heist.

Ingle says the stolen ride was found at a local wrecker service. And, no, the car wasn’t towed due to a break down. The investigation revealed a woman, who claimed she was the owner, had sold the car to the Ardmore business. The price for the purloined transportation? $50.

Ingle confirmed a suspect has been identified and the case is being sent to the district attorney’s office for review and charges.

Meanwhile, the real owner and his car have been reunited.
