A West Jordan woman previously unable to reclaim her stolen car from a State Tax Commission impound lot will be back on the road again soon.

An anonymous donor bought Stefani Bohin's vehicle back for her Tuesday for an undisclosed amount from the owner of a Sandy auto lot, said Tax Commission spokeswoman Janice Perry.In addition, a Sandy city councilman purchased the new battery needed to start the travel-worn '77 Toyota Celica.

"It will be great to have my car back," said Bohin. "I really appreciate the people who stepped in and helped me with the costs."

The auto lot owner obtained possession of the vehicle on Dec. 23 after it went to auction.

Since her car was stolen in mid-October, Bohin has had to depend on friends and family members to take her to work each day.

Although the vehicle was located by Sandy police several days later, the 20-year-old single parent could not afford to replace lost registration documents, nor pay rising reclamation fees.

Bohin said she's waiting for her next paycheck to renew the vehicle's expired registration and claim her car.
