West Bloomfield Township police last week found a 2001 Toyota Avalon in a swamp near a Leo’s Coney Island restaurant three days after it was reported stolen.
On Thursday, Aug. 25, officers responded to a woman who said her car was stolen while she was eating at the Coney Island.
There were no signs of tools or broken glass at the scene.
On Sunday, Aug. 28, a police officer was dispatched on a report of a suspicious vehicle after a car was observed in the swamp, which turned out to be the Avalon.
There were no occupants in the vehicle and the door was locked with the ignition intact.
An officer suspects that the Toyota may have rolled over the curb into the swamp.
