Technology leads to missing cars

William Ferchland, Tahoe Daily Tribune

A 34-year-old woman who worked at Hertz Car Rental was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property after two rental cars were found at her residence in the 3000 block of Anne Street, South Lake Tahoe police officers said.

A car rental manager noticed the cars were missing and used a global positioning system aboard a $50,000 2003 Lincoln Navigator to find out where it was located. Officers said they found the Navigator and a 2002 Hyundai at the woman’s house.

The woman said she started using the vehicles on Aug. 17 because her own car didn’t run, an officer said.
