A 2014 Subaru was stolen from the front of a home in Shelton St, Avenel overnight Saturday before being set alight a short distance away.
The owner was not aware her vehicle had been stolen until the following morning, when it was reported to police.
The car was found on Sunday.
Skid marks on the road near where the vehicle was found indicate the offenders may have been hoon driving before burning the vehicle.
The vehicle, valued at $20000, is a write-off.
