A car left typically unlocked in the driveway of a home at 45 Mansfield Ave. was stolen recently, a resident reported to police.
The resident told police at 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 31, that the stolen car is owned by her ex-husband and was kept in the driveway for use by other family members. It was always unlocked, with the keys inside. All other family members confirmed they hadn’t taken the car.
The ex-wife said she might have seen the car three days before, but wasn’t certain. She didn’t have specific information on the car, including registration information.
Police later spoke with the ex-husband, who gave them more information on the 2009 Toyota Matrix, which has a license plate number of AC1510. Police also got information from state registration records. The man said the vehicle is mostly used by his son.
The investigation is ongoing.
