WASHINGTON, D.C. – Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey reported his Ford Crown Victoria police vehicle stolen a block from his home, according to the Washington Post newspaper. D.C. police officials said Ramsey's black unmarked car was stolen between the night of June 17 and the morning of June 19 from a street in Southwest Washington. It had been left there June 17 by a member of the force's motor pool so Ramsey would have it when he returned from a one-week trip to a counter-terrorism conference in Scotland. Ramsey arrived home early June 19. When he awoke to go to church later that morning, he said he couldn't find the black Crown Victoria. The chief said initially he thought there was simply a misunderstanding about where the motor pool officer had left the car. But yesterday morning, after another fruitless search for the vehicle, he concluded that it had been stolen. Police officials said they do not believe the thieves knew they were taking the police chief's car. No weapons were left in the Crown Victoria, but it was equipped with a police radio. Its trunk contained a large duffle bag filled with some of the chief's riot gear, police said. Union officials said the chief should be investigated for leaving the gear unattended because officers would be disciplined in a similar situation, a claim that the chief denied.
