Man Rents Stolen Rental Car

A man was arrested in Chicago last week after he rented a stolen rental car from the man who stole it, according to a report by DNAinfo.com.

The car was rented from Payless Car Rental earlier this year and was due back on Jan. 19, police and prosecutors told DNAinfo.com. Payless reported the car stolen on Feb. 20.
