CUMMING, Ga. — A woman said her Ford Mustang was stolen from her driveway overnight, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

The woman in the 1000 block of Eaglecreek Trail near Bald Ridge Marina Road told deputies she saw her 1999 Ford Mustang missing at about 11 a.m. July 11.

She said she let a friend borrow the car, and he had returned it the day before.

She took her car to the store, came home and went to sleep.

When she woke the next morning, the keys were missing from her couch and her car was gone.

When deputies were on scene, another friend of the woman’s arrived and said the car was found damaged in a tow yard in Dawsonville.

Dawsonville law enforcement said they were dispatched to a single-car accident on Ga. 136 at about 7 p.m. July 10 that involved the woman’s stolen Mustang.

The car was unoccupied when deputies arrived. They said the driver was possibly a woman because they saw mascara on the car’s deployed airbag.

Dawsonville deputies searched the area with K-9 units, but they did not find the suspect.
