Police in Scarsdale are investigating a stolen rental car taken from a Westchester County gas station.
Officers were dispatched to the Shell Station on Scarsdale Avenue on Jan. 23, where there were reports of a stolen rental vehicle from the location. Police spoke to a rental associate, who stated on Dec. 27 last year, a customer returned a 2017 Red Ford Fusion, which has not been seen since.
Police said that the rental associate “reported being very busy at the time the vehicle was returned and stated that this was the last time he recalled seeing the vehicle.” A “thorough” inventory check of the Avis corporate yard determined that the vehicle was missing from the fleet.
According to police, the man further explained that there is no current surplus of inventory, eliminating the possibility of a clerical error. An investigation into the missing vehicle is ongoing.
