OSTERSUND, Sweden, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- A Swedish man said a failed attempt to steal his car and a slow response after he reported the theft to police, resulted in him getting a $91 parking ticket.

Pontus Persson of Ostersund said he was getting ready to leave for work Tuesday morning when he discovered his car had been moved about 30 feet with some windows smashed, his GPS device missing and his steering column broken, Swedish news agency TT/The Local.se reported Friday.

"I understood immediately that the car thieves had tried to steal the car but hadn't pulled it off," Persson said.

Persson said he left the car in place so as not to disturb any evidence and reported the incident to police.

However, he said he came outside the following day to discover a $91 ticket left on the car by police for the vehicle being improperly parked. He said police never called him back about the theft.
