Car stolen with officer's ID, pistol

By Terri Rupar

A law enforcement officer's Jaguar was stolen in Prince George's County on Saturday night with the officer's gun and credentials inside, authorities said.

Just after 5:45 p.m., police were dispatched to a shopping area near Central Avenue and the Capital Beltway for the report of a stolen auto. An officer from the District had left his Jaguar unattended with the keys inside, and someone made off with it, said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a Prince George's police spokesman. Rodriguez said the officer's gun and his law enforcement credentials were in the vehicle, which had not been recovered Sunday afternoon.

Rodriguez said he did not know which agency the officer worked for, but it was one in the District. NBC4 reported that the officer was a D.C. courthouse security guard. A spokeswoman for D.C. Superior Court could not immediately confirm that, and a D.C. police spokeswoman said she had no information that "anything like that" occurred involving a D.C. officer.

Smart move. Let me leave my car running, with gun and id inside, while I stand outside. Did he also have a sign on top which said "take me"?
