RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Renton Police Department says one person has been detained after a Renton police car was stolen Thursday afternoon.

KOMO-TV reports several agencies helped search for the vehicle after it was reported stolen shortly after 1:30 p.m.

Renton police say officers saw a potential auto theft suspect on-foot at a car dealership. They attempted to talk to the man but he walked away.


As officers were walking back to their patrol cars, a witness called 911 to report the man had reached into the open window of one of the patrol cars, unlocked the door and drove away.

Seattle Police located the stolen police car 30 minutes later. The suspect, an adult male in his 30s, was found several blocks away and arrested for felony theft.
