This kind of reminds us of the story about Justin Bieber forgetting where he parked his Ferrari.
This man has a similar story, only it was his friend that lost his car. The man let his friend borrow his BMW to head into town for a concert back in June 2016. After the show, the man couldn’t remember which parking garage he picked to park the car. He even looked for the car, for 5 days, trying to track it down. The owner of the car emailed and called garages and towing companies trying to find it, with no success.
After a while, he just reported the car as lost/stolen, and pretty much gave up in August. Last Friday night (not the Katy Perry song, but December 30th), police found the car, sitting quiet and parked in a garage. They suspected it was an abandoned vehicle, and after looking up the registration and history of the car, police discovered it to be the one reported lost/stolen nearly 4 months earlier.
Police later estimated the charges for parking in the garage will be around $6,000 or so. Ouch. No word on if his friend is picking up the bill. Story here.
