An 85-year-old Summerfield mobile home park dweller called a Marion County sheriff’s deputy for help Tuesday after discovering that his vehicle was missing.
The man, who lives in the Shady Acres Mobile Home Park at 16901 S U.S. 301, told the deputy that his dark blue 2014 four-door Nissan Sentra, valued at $5,000, had been stolen from his driveway. The man said he had last seen the sedan, which contained damaged to the passenger-side fender, on Monday at 10 p.m., a sheriff’s office report states.
The man said he first noticed the vehicle missing when he woke up at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. He said he regularly left the vehicle unlocked and his wallet, which contained a spare key, was in the car, the report says.
The deputy made other law enforcement in the area aware of the missing vehicle. He also entered it, along with the license tag, into the computer system as a stolen vehicle, the report says.
