Cuffed prisoner steals patrol car, cops implicate dealership12/10/2012
Damn those car salesmen with their high-pressure tactics, like selling vehicles with working parts. Blame them for Darren Porter being on the loose after the handcuffed burglary subject escaped from the backseat of a patrol car in White Settlement, Texas, then drove it away while cops were talking to the store owner Porter allegedly stole from. Just how did he do it? By hitting the release and rolling down the back window, which shouldn't have been operable, according to Lt. J.P. Bevering, who says he thought the cars "came from the dealership with [the back window rollers] disconnected, but they were not." (Cop cars must also come with the keys permanently in the ignition.) "It reminded me of the Keystone Cops," antique store owner Kenny Boone told KTVT of Dallas. [Source]
