Deputy's patrol car stolen, recovered over the weekend

MIDDLETOWN – A deputy sheriff's patrol car was stolen Saturday evening after he responded to a call.


Officials said the vehicle was recovered a short time later but the vehicle's key and the deputy's personal cell phone were missing.


Capt. Rob Howe of the Lake County Sheriff's Office reported that a sheriff's deputy responded to what he believed to be a fight behind Noble's Bar in Middletown at 12:55 a.m. Saturday.


The deputy followed one of the involved parties into the bar, Howe said, and upon returning to the parking lot, the deputy found that his patrol vehicle had been stolen.


The deputy located the vehicle approximately 10 minutes later, parked behind Hardester's Market in Middletown, with the key and phone missing, Howe said.


Howe said the vehicle’s Mobile Audio Visual (MAV) Unit captured video of the subject believed to have stolen the vehicle.


He said the suspect is still outstanding at this time. No description of the suspect has been released.
