Either you’re incredibly brave or just plain crazy for taking a joy ride in a police cruiser,
but either way these criminals got a extra bonus – new toys for their next heist
Montebello police spent more than an hour today trying to find a police cruiser after someone apparently took it for a joy ride and stole two weapons inside before ditching the vehicle.
Lt. Brad Keller said the cruiser was stolen shortly after 3 a.m., when officers were dispatched to a party in the 600 block of Forbes Avenue. Keller said he was unsure how the cruiser was stolen but said the incident was “under investigation.”
West Covina police found the vehicle about an hour later on North Ballista Avenue in La Puente. Keller said two weapons inside the vehicle — an AR-15 assault rifle and an 870 Remington shotgun — were missing.
