Stupid Case File for February 12, 2006

"It's not just unusual, it's embarrassing," said a spokesman for police

Detectives in Germany were dumbstruck after a man they had just booked for burglary walked out of the police station and drove off in one of their cars, authorities said Wednesday.

"It's not just unusual, it's embarrassing," said a spokesman for police in the central town of Eschwege.

Police said the 27-year-old must have pocketed the key of the car during his interrogation. After he was charged and released, officers were stunned to see the man easing out of the station in the unmarked vehicle and immediately gave chase.

Three cars, including the stolen vehicle, were damaged in the ensuing pursuit. It ended with the man's re-arrest.

Little unrelated, but funny embarassing story. We own a truck garage. The city fire department had a truck seriously ill, and was brining it in for repair. They cleaned out the truck (too well I'm afraid) in preparation for its down time. On the way to my shop, the fire dept's truck caught on fire...AND THEY DID NOT HAVE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER ON BOARD... It was embarassing for them :)
