A woman allegedly stole a Laval police officer’s cruiser before abandoning the vehicle in Montreal.
Laval police say around 10 a.m. a solo officer responded to a “woman in need” near the Pont-Viau neighbourhood and “for reasons that are still unclear” she was able to take control of the cruiser, said Erika Landry, a police spokesperson.
Officers were able to recover the car near the Henri-Bourassa metro station in Montreal, just across the Rivière-des-Prairies. The woman was arrested and is scheduled to meet with investigators later on Monday.
There were no injuries reported and the incident was still under investigation late Monday afternoon.
