Its appearance in Mullion prompted many theories, but now the real reason behind the US Customs and Border Protection vehicle being parked in the village can be revealed.
Jane, who lives near London, got in touch to say her son Justin owns the car and they had been staying in Mullion on holiday for the week with their dogs.
She said: “We did get some very odd looks that week and we were a little concerned on any narrow lanes we might come across, but all was OK.”
Jane added that the model seen in Mullion was a genuine US police car that had been imported from Kentucky in America in 2013, after finishing service with the Boone county sheriff.
It recently appeared in the film The Commuter, starring Liam Neeson, and Justin takes the car to events.
