D.C. police chief's car stolen

Editor's note: A good reminder of why you should be cautious about the kind of gear and paperwork you leave in your car...

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON- District of Columbia Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey has personal insight into the city's car theft problem.

His unmarked black 1999 Ford Crown Victoria was stolen near his home.

"When he went to go to the car to go to church (Sunday), he discovered that it was missing," police spokesman Sgt. Joe Gentile said Monday.

The vehicle had been parked near Ramsey's home by a police officer Friday evening while the chief was out of town.

Some police equipment, including a riot helmet and some clothing were in the car, but there were no weapons, Gentile said.
