MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Riley County police are investigating the theft of a car that a man rented out through the Turo car share marketplace, officials said.

A 30-year-old man and Turo Car Share were listed as victims of the theft, which was reported around 2:02 p.m. Friday in the 400 block of Stone Drive, on the west side of Manhattan.

According to Riley County police, a 31-year-old woman rented the male victim’s blue 2020 Ford Fusion through Turo but never returned it.

“When a vehicle is reported stolen, our team works with law enforcement to find the vehicle as soon as possible and resolve the issue,” said a spokesperson for Turo. “Although these incidents are uncommon in our marketplace, we do offer vehicle owners protection plans that cover vehicle damage or theft and include $750,000 in third party liability insurance. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and will keep all affected parties updated when we have more information to share.”

The estimated total loss in this case was approximately $26,000, Riley County police said.
