What would they be charged with?..(Canada)?

I Just heard of someone in our paper that did jthis yesterday.
I was really curious as, I never really heard of this one before.

Two people go into a car dealership, One tells the sale person that he is looking to buy a car, after talking awhile, he asks to go on a test drive.. (2008 Mustang).
The sales man, takes the appropriate copy of drivers Lic. etc.
the person then drives off the lot alone..fills the car up with gas, keeps it for a whole day driving all over with it...later that night they sneak back and park the car with the keys in it in a fast food place across from the dealership and leave it there..they call the dealership and tell them that the car is right across the street, and where the key is and that they just were driving all day for fun and they just brought it back, nothing was done to the car except lots of mileage was added on it.
What may the charge and sentence be in court? He did have permission to take car and no time was mention to return it?

In Canada... charges could be ??????
In my state, they would probably be looking at Misdemeanor Joy Riding if the dealership would want to press charges.

I would think the driver would be blacklisted with all the car dealers in the province or at least in the city. They would not be allowed to take any cars for a "test drive" without supervision. I would be very surprised if the car dealer would not report the car stolen before closing for the day. They also might sue you for the car depreciation. Do you really think these people that do this all day every day have not thought of your scheme?

There is no crime. Theft and fraud under the Criminal Code of Canada require consent and honest representation.

Also there is no crime if the employees or the owner did not report it stolen.

No complaint. No crime.

But there may be a case for a civil action because they caused unnecessary depreciation after taking it for the whole day.

I would believe that it would be a civil matter. Mischief would be a stretch, but they did "interfere with the lawful use and enjoyment" of the vehicle on the part of the dealership.
