A woman pulled up to a Boyle Heights gas station in a Long Beach police cruiser early this morning. Suspicious as why a civilian clad woman was rummaging through the cruiser for money to purchase a lighter, the gas station attendants called police who responded and arrested her around 3:30 a.m., according to the LA Times. It is unknown how the cruiser was stolen, but the LAPD has transfered her into Long Beach's custody.
