As far as stolen police vehicles go in South Florida, this one doesn’t rate that high on the Wacky Meter.
It wasn’t stolen by a hospital patient and taken for a joyride (as far as anybody knows). It wasn’t stolen from a presidential police detail and crashed into the Port Tunnel. And it wasn’t stolen and used for random drive-by shots at other cars.
This was just your mundane go-to-bed-with-your-car-outside, wake-up-needing-Uber deal. Like many a car theft. Except this 2008 Crown Victoria marked Miami-Dade police car contained a police helmet and bulletproof vest when stolen from a South Miami-Dade driveway in the area of Southwest 276th Street and 167th Avenue.
The officer arose after 8:30 a.m. to find her car — No. 1606A with license plate TB2396 — gone like Sunday night.
