A Denton County woman who runs a day care service out of her home in the 1200 block of King George Lane reported that her car was stolen by a client Monday.
She said a mother showed up and asked to use the vehicle for an emergency, the report stated.
She said she denied the client’s request and went to check on the children.
The woman said that while she was busy, the mother went to the garage and entered the vehicle.
The keys to the vehicle were in the ignition, according to a sheriff’s report.
The woman confronted the mother, who said she would return the car in an hour and then drove off.
The woman then called the client’s husband, who said she runs off all the time and that she was not welcome at their residence anymore, according to the report.
The woman said she waited to file the report because she thought she had to wait 24 hours before reporting a stolen vehicle.
3800 block of Camelot Street — A woman reported that someone took part of her satellite dish.
