Police: Ohio woman drives off in officer's car

Suspect takes police car / File

Police say a woman being arrested for alleged prostitution in Ohio managed to get in the driver's seat of an unmarked police cruiser and drive off.

Columbus police say 22-year-old Morgan Nelson was found nearly seven hours later sleeping in the car at a rest area along Interstate-71 about 25 miles away .

Local news media report the undercover officer's badge, cell phone and police radios were in the car when the woman drove away at about 2 a.m. Monday. Authorities tracked the car using the phone's signal.

The Highway Patrol says officers woke Nelson upon finding her, and broke a window when she refused to exit the car. Nelson, of Columbus, is jailed awaiting Tuesday arraignment on aggravated robbery and other charges. No attorney is listed in court records.
