Authorities in Salt Lake City say a rental car company employee used Facebook to trick a woman into returning a vehicle she stole.

The Deseret News reports Jennifer Marshall Hansen rented an SUV from Affordable Rent-A-Car but failed to return it as scheduled on Sept. 1.

The 42-year-old woman from Sandy now faces a second-degree felony count of theft of a rental vehicle. The charge was filed Wednesday in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court.

Hansen could get up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

Court papers say a company employee "friended" Hansen on Facebook and arranged to meet with her. The papers say Hansen drove the stolen vehicle to the meeting and the employee called police.
