4501 Verona Rd. (BP gas station)


The MPD recovered a stolen 2018 Chevrolet Malibu Thursday afternoon after a subcontractor for a rental car company disabled the car by using OnStar technology. The car had been rented on February 7th from a Hertz rental location in Madison, 2101 Darwin Rd. It was due back on February 11th, and when that failed to happen, it was listed as stolen. The Hertz subcontractor was tracking the car via GPS from his location in Texas. When the car stopped at a BP gas station, 4501 Verona Rd., the subcontractor used OnStar to disable it. Surveillance video shows two men attempting to restart the car. They gave up and someone in a different car picked them up prior to the arrival of officers. The MPD is hoping the video, and information retained by Hertz, will help them identify suspects.
