Utah rental car shop employee uses Facebook to recover overdue SUV; woman faces theft charge
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' Authorities in Salt Lake City say a rental car company employee used Facebook to trick a woman into returning a vehicle she stole.
The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/qhpmTO ) Jennifer Marshall Hansen rented an SUV from Affordable Rent-A-Car but failed to return it as scheduled on Sept. 1.
The 42-year-old woman from Sandy now faces a second-degree felony count of theft of a rental vehicle. The charge was filed Wednesday in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court.
Hansen could get up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
Court papers say a company employee "friended" Hansen on Facebook and arranged to meet with her. The papers say Hansen drove the stolen vehicle to the meeting and the employee called police.
