An unmarked L.A. County Sheriff's vehicle was stolen from an Alhambra car dealership on Sunday, reports the L.A. Times.

Surveillance camera caught footage of a lone male walking into the service area of Alhambra Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram at 1100 W. Main St., and driving away in a black 2016 Dodge Charger. The incident happened at about 5:30 a.m.

As the Alhambra Police Department noted in a Facebook posting, the vehicle has no exterior markings. Inside, it's equipped with emergency lights that include "covert red, blue and white strobe lights," as well as a Sheriff's Department radio. There were no weapons or other emergency equipment inside the car.

The Charger has four doors, chrome factory wheels, and a California license plate reading 7MRA998.
