Stolen Car Returns - Next Door

May 7, 1986

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Two days after Beverly Rand’s car was stolen, the thief made a big mistake - he parked it next door to her house.

″It’s unreal,″ said Detective Gerald Borchers. ″That was a one in a million chance.″

Police said the thief who stole Mrs. Rand’s car on Saturday evidently was visiting in the neighborhood on Monday.

Mrs. Rand called police while her husband, Larry, detained a man and a juvenile in the car.

The man was charged Tuesday with first-degree tampering and the youth was turned over to juvenile authorities.
