A woman who stole an idling black and white police vehicle in Arleta in January was recently arrested in Las Vegas, Los Angeles police said Tuesday.

The LAPD vehicle was left idling and momentarily unattended on Jan. 31, during an investigation of an attempted assault with a deadly weapon and robbery suspect who had barricaded himself inside a house on the 10000 block of Vena Avenue. SWAT members were called in to help take suspect Jose Luis Cervantes into custody.

Police said Maria Erika Covarubias -- a friend of Cervantes -- got into the patrol car, drove off and left the vehicle three miles away...

Subby, I am disappoint.

Also:

"By the way, the term "what happens in Vegas...", that should be, like, buried in a graveyard of overused expressions along with "You go, girl" and "Show me the money.""

Has california become that liberal that they cant even call a theft a theft?

FTA: "one felony count of driving without the owners' consent " Thats theft where I come from.

Any other state you'd get:
Theft of a motor vehicle
Grand Theft Auto (with all of the equipment installed that cruiser puts it well into GTA
-insert any other various state statute here-

but in california you get "Driving without the owners' consent"

/ "california" not capitalized because it no longer deserves status as one of our states.

For a second there I thought she had actually driven it to Las Vegas. Now that would have been funny.

That's not just California. In MD we have "unauthorized use" of a motor vehicle.
 
2012-06-20 01:56:12 PM  
I bet if it was a regular car that the car thief would also be held on $25,000 bail.

I just found it to be extremely light to call what many other states prosecute as a theft , as simply "yeah she took it without asking first" At least it is a felony charge.

I just find that california sends tends to send some Fein Swein to Washington, to fark with the rest of the country with her tripe.

Your firearms laws are laughable.

I can see the difference. She didn't want to keep it, sell parts or destroy it, she just wanted to cause a disruption.

With a theft case, you have to show the intent to permanently deprive the owner of possession of the object. In an unauthorized use case, you just have to show that the subject used the vehicle without permission.

OK, that is completely logical.
So what is to stop every single car thief who gets caught either in the act, or shortly after the act, from claiming, that they just needed to take it to go to the store, but would have dropped it off somewhere?

I know it is usually up to the DA as to what charge to pursue, despite what they were arrested for. It just seems for the most part they would have aimed higher unless they just went for low hanging fruit and an easy win.

Obviously her intent matches up with the charge, i just wasn't aware that such a lenient sounding charge existed. It doesn't seem to get much use is PA. (at least not where I am from)

/thank you for the enlightenment

We usually charge both u/u and auto theft in most cases. A u/u charge by itself is usually only in cases of "I lent My car to John yesterday to run to the store and he never came back." Tougher to show that they intended to permanently deprive, but they broke the boundaries of the permission given by the owner.

In Florida, we use grand theft; theft being depriving the owner of the use of the vehicle.

CSB time:

Once, while on a call, we heard and saw a marked police car from another jurisdiction fly past us and duly advised that another department was running an emergency through our jurisdiction. Less than an hour later, we heard a BOLO for a marked police vehicle taken from a gas station really close to where we saw that car go flying by. It's funny until it happens to you.

/Hasn't happened to me
//Hopefully never will

Squad car never went to Vegas. It can't, therefore, stay in Vegas.
