car found

Just got a message (because I forgot to take my phone out of silent mode last night) saying that my car was found. I'm heading over to the Public Safety Complex now to find out what the situation is.

car update part 2

The car was found at 223 Federal Avenue, which is like a mile away from where it was stolen. It is supposedly undamaged. So I guess everyone who said joyriders was probably right? (Possibly with a side order of 'hey, free guitar!')

I used the magic of Google Maps Street View to see what it's like over there. It doesn't look particularly sinister. (Actually I think Chris Monti lives in that general neighborhood -- shhh!)

No word on whether anything was still in the back seat (the guitar and Christmas presents). I didn't ask about the trunk because I don't really want anyone new poking around in there.

I get to pick it up tomorrow any time after 9 am. (This is ideal, because it means I get to take at least one medium-sized trip in the good old rental car before I have to return it.) Does anyone feel like giving me a ride? (Time flexible.) The address of the tow lot is 754 Branch Avenue.

Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and kind thoughts.

I guess I should call my insurance company.

Edit: I called up my insurance guy to let him know, and he confirmed what I suspected, which is that 'undamaged' doesn't necessarily mean, for instance, 'drivable'. So we will see. Still, I'm just happy they found it so fast.
