Taxi theft suspect bust for cop car nap

A CONNECTICUT man charged with stealing a taxi cab stepped out of a Boston police station and into an empty patrol car for a nap on Monday morning, police said.

Shortly after being arrested and released on bail, Nicholas Cunliffe was found asleep in an empty police car outside the station.

“After officers were able to rouse Cunliffe from his nap, he told officers he was just looking for a place to rest,” police said.

Cunliffe was charged with breaking and entering.

It was the second time this month that Boston police have arrested someone for breaking into a car for a nap.

Last week, a woman found two people asleep in her car parked near an area hospital after she finished her shift.

Police arrested the two women and charged them with breaking and entering a motor vehicle. – Reuters
