Oregon Car Theft Suspect Asks Officer for Ride
SALEM, Ore. (AP) An Oregon car theft suspect who took off on foot in Salem was able to flag down a motorist for a ride. The only problem: the helpful driver was an undercover police officer.
The Statesman Journal reports the officer had been looking for the suspect Thursday and recognized the 31-year-old from previous contacts for other crimes.
When the suspect knocked on the window of the unmarked car and asked for a lift, he got one straight to jail.
