Police in Mexico arrested a man who stole an empty police car after he slammed the car into a garbage dumpster at the end of a two-hour joy ride.
"When I found the car and I saw it had the key in the ignition, well, I just got in," car thief Alejandro Juarez told local media here.
"I was thinking about taking off the tires so I could sell them," he said.
"But then I was thinking first I would take it for a spin and then bam, I got a bit distracted and crashed," Juarez said.
Officer Erika Moncada had stopped her patrol car and left the engine running to respond to a fight when Juarez happened upon the vehicle.
After Juarez' two-hour joyride and surprise stop, police took him into custody.
