HALIFAX - Police have charged a Halifax woman after she tried to take an extended test drive from a car dealership on Friday.
Around 9:15 a.m., Halifax Regional Police say a woman went to a car dealership on Kempt Road in Halifax and took a SUV for a test drive after providing identification from a different province.
When the woman failed to return the vehicle, the dealerships’ staff called police and reported the vehicle stolen.
At 12:55 p.m. Sunday, officers arrested 48-year-old Cheryl Ann Moyles of Halifax at a home on Lady Hammond Road.
Police say the stolen vehicle was recovered nearby and returned to the dealership.
Halifax Regional Police spokesman Const. Pierre Bourdages wouldn’t say which specific dealership the vehicle was stolen from. He said the SUV was a high-end model worth about $50,000.
Moyles was held in custody overnight and was set to appear in Halifax provincial court Monday to face a charge of theft of motor vehicle over $5,000, and five counts of breach of court orders.
