What better way to start the first day back to work after vacation?
A Philadelphia Police car has been recovered after it was stolen from outside the 35th District building early Saturday morning.
Two officers were inside the building with a prisoner at about 6:15 a.m. When the officers went back outside, the cruiser was gone.
Police said there was an extra set of keys in the cup holder.
The car was found on the 7300 block of North 21st Street at about 2 p.m. and now police are searching for a suspect. (H/T – CBS3)
Wow, I need a vacation.
One of the first things my training officer told me when I came out of the Academy was, “Always lock your doors and take your keys with you.” Now, that’s not always possible, especially after arriving at a priority job, but it’s a good habit to have.
Of course, one wouldn’t think a police car could be stolen out of a police lot, but this is North Philly we’re talking about. Our criminals have huge cojones.
