Hey That's My Car!!

Police officer pulls over his stolen car:

By Associated Press

June 6, 2005

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- An off-duty police officer on a Sunday drive saw something awfully familiar -- his recently stolen Volkswagen Jetta.

North Charleston patrolman Ethan Bernardi whipped his cruiser around and pulled over the stolen vehicle. He called other deputies, who arrested three suspects, police said.

"One of the advantages to having off-duty police officers using their patrol cars while off-duty is that they are able to respond to crimes when needed," North Charleston Police Chief Jon Zumalt said.

Investigators don't know how the suspects got the car, which was recently stolen from Bernardi's home.

The driver, Vicki K. Grooms, 42, and two passengers were charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.

That is why this country should learn from our northern neighbor, use bait cars.

That looks like an effective program. If they really wanted to implement this in the US I would vote for Long Beach, CA and catch the $%#@ers who got my pristine WRX.

when i moved to albuquerque i noticed that the police were permitted to take their vehicles home off duty. i had never seen that before and was not sure i liked the idea until there were a couple gangs squaring off in front of my apartment (i was working on my car at the time so i saw this happen) and a couple of off-duty police cruisers rolled up and those kids ran for the hills! i didn't know the cop was off duty until he jumped out of the car wearing a bathing suit and a tank top! from then on i was for it...i mean for cops taking the cars home not men wearing tank tops!
