OK, on the lighter side, if you can call it that, here’s a story of a handcuffed theft suspect who somehow was still able to steal a police car.

We’re betting the officer who had his vehicle stolen is wishing he could shut down the car remotely.

Of course he could’ve avoided the theft if the rear passenger window had been locked.

The handcuffed suspect had been left alone in the squad car — and somehow managed to roll a window down, slide the car door open and drive off — leaving officers in White Settlement, Texas, rushing to find him days after the incident, according to The Sacramento Bee.

Whoops!!!

A video shot from another vehicle’s dash cam caught Darren Porter, 41, sliding out of the backseat and pulling off the squad car theft.

Cops had detained Porter Friday morning, over allegations that he’d broken into a nearby antiques store — and officers had cuffed him and tossed him into the back of a Ford Crown Victoria squad car, officers said.
