In the words of Roseanne Roseannadanna of "Saturday Night Live" fame— "Never mind."

After seeing media reports about a car being stolen through a repossession scheme in Indiana County, two men came forward and said they repossessed the wrong car Wednesday, state police at Indiana said.

The men were to repossess a 2000 Ford Focus with the same three first digits of the registration plate as the 2005 Ford Focus eventually taken and owned by Diane Howard, 56, of White.

The last four digits of the 2000 car were close to Howard's, police added.

The repossession men failed to check the vehicle identification number to confirm they had the right car, police said.
