Police said Thursday they have arrested a 73-year-old man on suspicion of stealing a parked police car in Kanagawa Prefecture.
According to police, the man, who has been named as Makoto Ishikawa, is accused of taking the car from a street in Sagamihara at around 7 a.m. on Wednesday. The two officers responsible for the car were responding to an emergency call at a nearby apartment and left the car unlocked with the engine running to keep the red light flashing, TBS reported.
When Ishikawa got into the car, an alarm sounded, which alerted the officers. They chased him for about 85 meters before he pulled over. Ishikawa, who does not have a driver's license, was reportedly intoxicated at the time of his arrest and told officers, "I wanted to have a quick spin in a police car," TBS said.© Japan Today
