Well, isn't that what this case was about - a friend "took" the car (as in 'borrowed' it), then refused to return it? If so, motor vehicles are the only type of property the police will normally recover if they find out you temporarily loaned someone your personal property and it wasn't returned - anything else, the police will simply insist that you "gave" the property way, and therefor it is a "civil matter", and they don't get involved in civil matters unless ordered to by a judge. I could be wrong, but it doesn't make sense to me that the suspected car thief is specified as a "friend, unless the "thief" asked to borrow the car before taking it.
