A Scotland man borrowed his friends BMW and drove to Manchester to catch a concert. He parked in one of the several parking garages in the area and by the time he drove out officers are guessing he owed about $6,150!
From USA Today:
In June, a man borrowed a friend’s BMW in Scotland and drove south to Manchester to catch a Stone Roses concert at Etihad Stadium, reports the Manchester Evening News. He parked the vehicle in one of the area’s parking garages and promptly forgot which one.
After the concert, he searched and searched, and ultimately spent five days trying to find his friend’s wheels before giving up. In August, the owner, who’d emailed local companies and government to see if it had been found, reported the vehicle lost or stolen.
Now officers say they happened upon an abandoned car in one of the area lots just before midnight Friday and, after seeing it had been reported lost or stolen, tweeted that they’d found the car that had been lost since June.
“We can’t imagine what the ticket machine is going to say when they finally put the ticket in,” posted Manchester City Centre officers in a follow-up tweet. The officers’ best guess? Around $6,150.
Driver apparently spent 5 days searching car parks in the city before reporting as lost/stolen.
