Police in North Texas say a handcuffed theft suspect left alone in
the back of a squad car managed to roll down a window, open the door,
then steal the vehicle.
Police arrested 41-year-old
Darren Porter on Friday on suspicion of breaking into an antiques shop
in White Settlement, near Fort Worth.
The window switches
in the back of squad cars are supposed to be disabled, but not in this
one. Police Lt. J.P. Bevering says Porter was able to roll down the
window, reach out and open the door. Dash-cam video from another squad
car shows him climbing into the driver's seat and taking off.
Porter remained at large Monday.
Police say they're checking other squad cars to make sure the windows don't open.
