On Sept. 12, Clearwater RCMP was informed of an abandoned vehicle in the Little Fort Husky’s parking lot. Police notified the registered owner of the vehicle, who was surprised because they had sold and transferred the vehicle out of their name.
The original owner did not complete the transfer documentation properly by taking the paperwork to the motor vehicle branch to be verified and stamped. Since the vehicle was still registered in their name, the original owner is still responsible for that vehicle.
The owner had the vehicle towed back to their residence.
