The note said, “Hello, So sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock and she came back with your car. I did not see the car until this morning and I said, 'that is not my car.' There is some cash for gas and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you...So so sorry for this mistake." The note also came with $30 for gas.
The "thief" of the car was later revealed to be a woman named Page Cramond. Cramond eventually met Hatzi via Facetime, where they laughed about the experience. “We now have a funny story that will haunt us,” Hatzi said.
It turned out that the red Subaru that Cramond was looking for was actually parked just a block away. “It’s like a bad sitcom that nobody would ever buy the story because it’s stupid and it makes no sense,” said Hatzi. “But it happened."
