Lockport man accused of attempting to keep rental car

LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) — After renting a Nissan Altima, Hertz Rent-A-Car saw red flags when the driver’s credit card was cancelled.

The rental company contacted police after they could no longer contact Christopher M. Abbott. Abbott rented the 2011 Nissan Altima from January to February 19.

Police who were attempting to find him say they learned he returned the vehicle to a different Hertz location after his family tipped him off to the police interest.

Abbott was eventually arrested following that for third degree misdemeanor unauthorized use of a vehicle.
