Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

If you report it stolen, then he would face charges depending on the intent. If he was only temporarily using the car (rather than trying to seal it), then this would be called unauthorized use of a vehicle, which is a misdemeanor in Wyoming. Potential penalty is up to 1 year in prison.

Now if he took the car to permanently steal it (maybe try to sell it for meth), then this would be burglary/theft, which would be a felony charge. Such a charge can result in 10 years in prison.

Additionally, if he is on probation, his probation will be revoked and he will go back to prison immediately.
