SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - ABC 4 News has dubbed a man the "Sweet Sleeper" after he spent the night in a University of Utah student's car, leaving behind a thank you note.
Because of Saturday night's rivalry game between BYU and Utah, Rebecca Gibbs couldn't park in her usual spot on campus. So she decided to leave it overnight in the parking garage near the Institute of Religion. But when Rebecca returned Sunday afternoon to pick up her 1998 Honda Civic, something wasn't right. All of the doors were unlocked, although, Rebecca says she locked them all before leaving her car behind.
"I know I at least locked the driver's door," Gibbs said.
But her car wasn't stolen and nothing was missing on the inside.
"They didn't even steal the extra air freshener I had in there," she said.
Rebecca didn't think much of it until.....
"I sat down to turn on my car and there was a note sitting on the dashboard," she said.
So what exactly did the note say?
"Apparently I slept in your car?
Hope you find your baby soon.
You keep a super clean ride.
I like it.
Please call for laughing matters.
P.S. I can't find my phone."
Yep, some random dude spent the night in Rebecca's car.
"Yeah, not funny," Rebecca told ABC4. "Breaking into my car and sleeping in it kind of freaks me out a little bit."
Whoever slept in Rebecca's car did not take it for a spin because the miles on the Odometer had not changed. The settings on the car seats and mirrors weren't touched, either. However, the "Sweet Sleeper" did leave behind a pair of sunglasses to go along with the thank you note.
When ABC4 tried calling the number on the note left by the stranger, the call went straight to voicemail, so we left a message. As did the police.
