UPDATE: Car Found After Reported Stolen From State Bank Parking Lot

Motor Vehicle Theft—An employee arrives late to work, then returns to find his car missing. Fortunately, the car is found later.

It's not every day that a car is reported stolen from a parking lot in the middle of downtown Geneva.

But that's exactly what was reported by a downtown employee who was running late for work on Saturday, July 28.

The good news is that the car since has been found. Geneva Cmdr. Eric Passarelli was kind enough to update the story Thursday (Aug. 2).

Passarelli said the black four-door 2001 Infinity I30T has been located, parked in a parking lot several blocks away from the bank.

"According to the vehicle owner, it seems as if the driver became confused with the Arts Fair traffic and road closures and (forgot) where he had parked the car," Passarelli said.

Before you laugh, just think how many times you've parked your car at some vast parking garage and forgotten where you parked it.

According to reports, the car was reported missing from the parking lot of the , 22 S. Fourth St., sometime between 12:30 pm. and 6:30 p.m. July 28.

The owner of the Infinity told police he was in a hurry because he was late for work when he parked in the southernmost parking lot of the State Bank of Geneva, 22 S. Fourth St. When he returned at 6:30 p.m., the vehicle was not where he thought he had parked it.

Glad I don't bank there...what if I try to make a deposit and he enters the wrong account...or rather forgets to enter the sequence of numbers correctly if he gets confused with changes in bank policies?

He didn't say he worked at the bank, was just parking there because he was late for work somewhere else in downtown Geneva. The bank wasn't even open when he used the lot.

Thank you for the update. I work close to the SBOG and was glad it was just a case of forgetfulness. I think most of us are guilty of that more than once.
