The car-sharing service formerly known as Car2Go on Wednesday temporarily halted rentals after more than 100 of its fleet, including at least 50 Mercedes-Benz vehicles, went missing. Police spokesperson Christine Calace said 21 people were charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass to vehicles.

Authorities say that more than 100 missing vehicles, including 50 Mercedes-Benz, may have been fraudulently rented through a mobile app in Chicago.

Some vehicles may have been rented using deceptive means through Share Now's mobile app, according to the Chicago Police Department.

Chicago police said that 100 vehicles are now unaccounted for, and that 50 vehicles - all of them Mercedes-Benz - remain in the Chicago area.

The company is working with law enforcement to address the issue, which is isolated to Chicago.

The company tweeted: "Clarification: We were not hacked".

Share Now said no other cities should be affected by this.
