The vehicle did not show as stolen when it was run through NCIC, and no owner called in to report it stolen. The vehicle did have damage to the driver's side near the front, however police noticed rust underneath the paint near the damage. This made police believe that the damage was old. Therefore police encouraged the man to remove the vehicle from his property at his convenience since he did not own it and did not request the vehicle to be placed on his property.
