It's A Steal

Sarge, Our Theft-Proof Police Car's Been Nicked

A hi-tech, theft-proof police car worth 75,000 quid was stolen in Berlin - after officers left it unlocked with the key in the ignition. The special BMW was the pride of the Berlin police force. But it was stolen when two officers jumped out to chase a joy-rider on foot after he had abandoned a stolen car. The criminal got away and when the officers went back they found the expensive BMW gone. Police chiefs say they have no leads on who may have stolen the car and are still looking for it.

FOOTNOTE: The Berlin wail.

hahaha.. Love it! I always see ads for shows like 'World's Dumbest Criminals'. I wonder if there is a counterpart for police officers? :)

I bet the person that jumped out of the stolen car, back tracked and took off in the Police Car. Pretty funny if that's true.

PATTY, up there in the list, beat me to it! Now wouldn't that be ironic, indeed?

"Practice what you POLICE---er, preach!"

BTW---if it's THAT hi-tech, wouldn't it equipped with GPS-navigation, for a trace, as well?

Sure sounds a lot like one of us "yew-essers", instead....!

Car's superior intelligence cannot overcome police officers' superior negligence.

Opportunity strikes again! :-)
It sure looks bad on paper, but 007 usually doesn't take the key out of the ignition either.
