Manchester homeowner comes home to a missing driveway
MANCHESTER - Call it the case of the disappearing driveway. When a homeowner on Highview Terrace came home recently, he discovered his paved driveway was gone.
After some investigation, police found a paving company behind the mystery -- the workers had inadvertantly torn up the wrong driveway. Their customer was actually in the home next door.
Fortunately, police say, everyone took the mistake in stride, including the owner of American Asphalt Paving.
"He told me that 'you guys stole a driveway'...which it was a joke! And we were going back and forth, so I ran over to the job, and I found that we dug up the wrong driveway," said Robert Stewart. "Never happened before."
Fortunately the neighboring homeowners had a good laugh. And for the man who's driveway disappeared? Well American Asphalt gave him a brand new one for free.
