Stolen police cruiser recovered in Somerville


Grand Theft Auto: Boston?

State Police said a cruiser stolen from a state Department of Transportation maintenance facility in South Boston was recovered in Somerville Monday afternoon.

Department spokesperson David Procopio told the Associated Press that the car was taken from the yard at some point Monday morning, before it was located later that day at the Twin City Plaza parking lot around 12:45 p.m.

The vehicle was reportedly being serviced for engine trouble and didn’t contain any weapons. Nothing else was taken from the cruiser, CBS Boston reported.

The cruiser was not assigned to any specific trooper and is used as a temporary replacement for troopers whose regularly cars are out of service, WCVB reported.

Authorities said the vehicle was not damaged.

Police continue to investigate.
