LOWELL, Mass. — City police are investigating who tampered with the security system in a police cruiser after a 20-year-old Lowell man stole the vehicle early Saturday morning and led police on a chase before crashing into several parked cars.

Police say that while Lowell Police Officer Soben Buth was responding, along with other officers, to a loud party at 1990 Middlesex St. about 2 a.m., he heard a screeching sound.
