Austin, TX - Austin police arrested a woman Sunday, Aug. 2 for stealing a cop car.
According to an affidavit Nicole Yvonne Thomas, 32, was taken into custody after an APD officer saw her driving down Congress Ave. playing with the lights.
Thomas told police she took the vehicle because an officer told her that if she took the car, she would be a cop.
Police say Thomas later changed her story and said that the vehicle was "sitting there unlocked", so she took it.
In the affidavit, Thomas stated that she passed several "real cops" and was afraid they would see her driving the police car.
Thomas is charged with felony theft.
Her bail is set at $25,000.
