D.C. Top Cop Has Car Stolen

The police chief in Washington, D.C., says he hadn't been a crime victim since he was a child. Now his string appears to be broken. According to The Washington Post, Police Chief Charles Ramsey parked his black Crown Victoria near his home — and when he came back, it was gone. Somebody made off with the unmarked police car. The chief is now driving a replacement. And his department has been searching all week for the missing vehicle.
