Man Arrested for Selling Rental Car

Police said a man was arrested in Paphos, Cyprus, on suspicion of trying to sell a rental car, according to a report by Cyprus Mail.

The suspect rented the car on Dec. 19, 2015, and was supposed to return it on Jan. 18. On Feb. 5, the man went to the rental company and said that he wanted to keep the car until Feb. 13, says the report.

Two weeks ago, police said the suspect tried to sell the car for 3,200 euros, telling the buyer that the rental company wanted to sell it, says the report.

The buyer paid the suspect 2,200 euros, and the two parties agreed that the balance would be paid after ownership was transferred, says the report. The buyer contacted the rental company after a delay, and the rental company told him that the vehicle was not for sale.
