July 28—MOULTRIE — The voyage of a Florida man’s Voyager continues. The van, towed from the scene of a traffic stop where the driver was arrested, was claimed by someone else and disappeared again.

Edgar Robalino, of Kissimmee, Fla.., reported being notified by his real estate agent on July 10, while he was in Canada on business, that his house had been burglarized and his 1998 Plymouth Voyager was stolen.

The next day the Polk County Sheriff’s Office called to tell him that the car was in Moultrie.

Maria Mezquital Severiano, 5411 Smith Lane Lot 14, Dover, Fla., was arrested during a traffic stop on the night of July 10. She was charged with no driver’s license and safety belt violation by the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office, and the van was towed.

Robalino told police that when he called the towing company on July 20, an employee told him that someone had picked up the van and that no information was available about that person’s identity.

As police investigated further, they found that the tag was registered to Robalino, but that the tag had no vehicle information listed. A check of the vehicle identification number indicated that the Voyager was registered to another man whose address is the same as Severiano’s.

That uncertainty over who is the registered owner explains why Severiano was not charged with possession of stolen property when she was arrested while driving the van, police said.
