A 18-year-old is in custody after admitting to police he stole an unmarked LMPD cruiser last week.
According to an arrest slip, they received information about the suspect Saturday and located him on Northwestern Parkway.
Officials said Tajuan Burton, 18, told officers that he stole the cop car from behind the mall.
The unmarked black Ford Taurus was stolen between midnight and 10 a.m. on Wednesday from an officer’s residence near Oxmoor Mall.
The car was later found on 35th Street.
Burton was taken to into custody Saturday where he gave a taped statement.
He is due in court Monday.
