An Arcade woman reported a suspicious incident to the Arcade Police Department on Monday, March 29, when she woke up to find a car abandoned in her yard.

The woman advised the car had a Gwinnett County license plate and she was concerned it could have been stolen and dumped on her property.

Contact was made with the registered owner who stated his son and daughter were driving the car when they started experiencing transmission problems. The car owner stated he saw a listing for an automotive repairman at this address and he instructed his children to drive the car to this location and leave it for repairs.

The complainant advised her husband had attempted to open a repair shop out of their home a few years ago and the listing for the repair shop still shows up on Yelp, after several unsuccessful attempts to get it removed.

The car owner agreed to have the car moved on March 30.
