New Zealand Woman Faces Charges for Stolen Avis Rental Vehicle

According to Stuff.co.nz, a woman was found on Aug. 2 with a stolen rental car from Wellington Airport. She will appear in Masterton District Court in New Zealand next week.

A man had posed as a car rental worker on July 13 at the airport when he took the keys of a 2012 SV6 Holden Commodore that was returned by a judge. Instead of returning the rental to Avis, the man drove the vehicle to Masterton and left it with a 24-year-old woman.

The woman was arrested, but an investigation is still underway to find the man who is believed to have taken the car from the airport.
