Fairfax City police collaborated with D.C. police, who located the car in D.C. not long after.
Well, the case has taken an interesting twist.
Fairfax City police recently reported that on Sept. 17 - eight days after taking the car and never returning it - the department received a call from the sister of the male suspect.
The sister reported that on the day of the test drive, Sept. 8, she had loaned her car to her brother - who had then put the car up as collateral in order to take the car for a test drive.
The dealership reportedly did eventually release her vehicle - but released it to the woman who had accompanied her brother on the test drive that never ended.
Now, an arrest warrant is not only pending for the man who never returned the test drive vehicle, but also for his female companion, who has not returned his sister's car. She is also charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle.
