Police dummy stolen from Wash. squad

LACEY, Wash. — Sure, Trevor was a dummy, but police want him back — and whoever stole the uniformed mannequin from a patrol car could face felony charges.

Trevor, outfitted with sunglasses and a uniform, routinely sat in a Lacey police car for a couple of hours at a time as a reminder to motorists to slow at key places in this town north of the state capital of Olympia. On Friday, police said, the driver's side window was broken and Trevor was nowhere to be found.

The car was out of service this week while the window was being repaired, police Cmdr. John Suessman said.

Disabling an emergency vehicle is a felony, Suessman noted.
