CYPRESS LAKE COURT – Complainant said she and her son purchased a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze for his girlfriend and him to drive. She said they broke up and her son said he allowed her to use the car and return it in a few days. The complainant said the car had not been returned and her son was working in South Carolina and did not have a phone. Upon contacting the girlfriend, she said they could have the car, but wanted the $2,000 back she said she contributed to the purchase. She was told she needed to go through a legal process to get her money back, but she needed to return the vehicle. She said the car was located in the parking garage of Memorial Hospital in Savannah, but she did not know where the keys were. The complainant said she found the car, but it was locked and the keys were nowhere to be found. The car was towed to a garage and the mother was advised of possible recourse through the Magistrate Court.
