ABILENE, Texas - From Abilene Police Department spokesman George Spindler:

At about 2:55 p.m. Tuesday, Officer Adrian Slaymaker responded to a stolen vehicle call at a residence in the 5400 block of Laguna Drive. APD dispatch had been informed by a female victim that she had not yet had her vehicle returned to her by a male subject and wanted to file a report.
