Surrey RCMP say it was a hoax.
The force reported earlier this week a man may have been shoved into the trunk of a BMW outside a drug store at Surrey Central Mall.
Mounties now say a woman came forward after seeing the incident reported in the news, saying she knew where the car was parked.
Officers found and spoke to the car's owner, and confirmed the incident was a hoax.
