A law enforcement officer’s Jaguar was stolen in Prince George’s County on Saturday night with the officer’s gun and credentials inside, authorities said.

Just after 5:45 p.m., police were dispatched to a shopping area near Central Avenue and the Capital Beltway for the report of a stolen auto. An officer from the District had left his Jaguar unattended with the keys inside, and someone made off with it, said Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a Prince George’s police spokesman. Rodriguez said the officer’s gun and his law enforcement credentials were in the vehicle, which had not been recovered Sunday afternoon.

Rodriguez said he did not know which agency the officer worked for, but it was one in the District. NBC4 reported that the officer was a D.C. courthouse security guard. A spokeswoman for D.C. Superior Court could not immediately confirm that, and a D.C. police spokeswoman said she had no information that “anything like that” occurred involving a D.C. officer.

    Ouch, I wouldn't leave my car running unattended, and I can't afford a nice car like that. I hope no one gets hurt by his gun or taken advantage of because of the badge.

    He's doing well for owning a Jaguar. Poor guy, should have used common sense.

    A guy who doesn't know how to lock a car and he is still employed? He's lucky he didn't come back to stare down his own barrel. He'll be double lucky if that gun gets recovered outside of a murder investigation.

    PG County is not the place to leave anything running with the keys in it. He could have owned a beat up 67 VW and it would have disappeared. Hopefully the gun will be recovered before someone gets killed with it.

    Well first off, even if I could afford a Jaguar...I sure as hell am not going to leave the thing running with the keys inside! Heck I don't even do that with my pimped out Chrysler Town and Country mini van!

    Secondly, how foolish is it to leave your gun and LE credentials in that same unlocked/unattended vehicle! If this is indeed the case, it sounds as if someone had other issues going on that were pre-occupying his mind!

    I use to work Private Security in PG County and if there is one thing you know working in that county is that "You Leave Your Keys In The Ride, Then You Can Kiss it Goodbye!!!" The gun was just an extra gift to the thug who took it to protect himself from being carjacked by the other thugs in that county. Mistake or not this most definiteley was not a smart move.

    Now what part of leaving your car running and unattended sounded like a good idea? I don't care who you are, where your work, or where you live.

    About a year ago, I went to a training seminar for "Officer Survival" in Fontana....... After one of the breaks, the seminar was interrupted by the following announcement.

    "Would the officer that left his weapon in the men's room during the break please come to the lobby to pick it up."

    There was silence as everyone turned to see who the idiot was that would get up.

    OOOOOPS!!!!!
