Police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle at the Baymont Hotel at 7017 Shallowford Road. A man told police that the woman he was staying with in the hotel stole his vehicle. He said she was on the way back with the vehicle and he wanted to press charges for theft. The woman arrived on scene shortly thereafter and handed the man a pack of cigarettes, which he accepted. The woman told police that he had given her permission to use the truck to go get him cigarettes. It was clear that the woman did not have intention to deprive the man of ownership. As such, police informed the man that the charge would be joy riding, not motor vehicle theft. The man still wished to press charges. As police had no evidence as to which person was telling the truth, no police action against the woman was taken and it was recommended the two part ways.
