Police: Man Stole Cop Car to Be Deported

Associated Press

January 05, 2011

JEROME, Idaho (AP) – Police in Idaho say a man who asked authorities to arrest and deport him to Mexico stole a squad car after his request was denied.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports that 38-year-old Guadalupe Cruz-Vasquez went to the Jerome County Sheriff’s office Monday night and demanded to be deported.

Police Sgt. Duane Rubink says authorities declined to take the Jerome resident into custody, so he walked to a nearby police station, broke the window of a squad car and drove away with the vehicle.

Rubink says a cell phone inside the vehicle helped police track its location near Carey, but police didn’t need to stop it: The car ran out of gas.

He says after that, Cruz-Vasquez finally got his wish.

    Sounds like lazy cops only doing the bare minimum to get by, take the extra step and call ICE and leave it up to ICE to make the call.

    They should have turned him over to ICE. After a couple of days with them, he will walk back home
