Chicago coppers investigating burglary, uh, lose their squad car!

A police squad car was reported missing this morning during a burglary call and turned up shortly afterward blocks away, police said.

About 4:15 a.m., police officers reported the squad car missing after a premises check in the 3500 block of South California Avenue in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said. The officers had been investigating after the activation of a burglar alarm in a building on the block.

Officers found the squad car abandoned shortly after, blocks from where the officers had left it, Sedevic said.

No suspects were in custody as of early this morning.

Yup. Every police department in the country lectures us about never leaving our keys in the car.

Not certain what sort of administrative hassles these coppers will be up for. Probably won’t match the embarrassment they feel.
