An Lachine woman has been arrested for failing to return a rental car, according to Michigan State Police.

On Dec. 3, the MSP Alpena Post was contacted to investigate a complaint made by Crossroads Plaza Auto Rental.

The owner of the business says Teresa Kortman, 38, of Lachine had rented a 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe and failed to return it on Dec. 1 as  indicated on the rental agreement.

Troopers say they entered the car as stolen in the Law Enforcement Information Network, and a report was submitted to the Alpena County Prosecutor’s Office for review.

According to troopers, a warrant was authorized for Kortman. They say they were made aware that she had been lodged in the Alpena County Jail, and the car was in a business parking lot in South Lyon.

Kortman was arraigned Monday in the 88th District Court in Alpena for one count failure to return rental property $20,000 or more.

Kortman is due back in court in January.
