Kilcollins located the vehicle and was instrumental in establishing a suspect and inconsistencies in the “victim’s” story. Through multiple interviews, a confession was obtained from the alleged female victim that she allowed her male friend to drive the car while he was drunk. The male crashed the car, left it at a stranger’s house, and left the immediate area. The female was charged with filing a false report and was advised to immediately change her insurance claim from a stolen vehicle or be charged with insurance deception. The claim was changed. The male driver admitted driving the car, and denied crashing but later admitted to crashing the car during a phone call.

The male was also on probation, and his probation officer is also dealing with the incident.
