A man suspected of burglarizing an antique store escaped the back of a police cruiser and then stole it, police in Texas said.
Police in the city of White Settlement said they caught 41-year-old Darren Douglas Porter burglarizing the shop in the 800 block of South Cherry Lane at about 7:20 a.m. Friday.
Officers detained Porter and cuffed him. They placed him in the back of the police car, shut the door and stepped away to talk to the store owner.
But Porter somehow got his cuffed hands in front of him and rolled down the window -- even though the back windows are not supposed to roll down.
Police said Porter tiptoed to the driver's seat, got in and took off. White Settlement police received two 911 calls about a police car that was driving erratically.
He abandoned the police car at an apartment complex off Shenandoah Road and Calmont Avenue in West Fort Worth.
Police said their chances of finding Porter are "very good."
