Crime tip: Don’t ask a cop for directions while you are driving a stolen car

Officer Theresa Lubrano said she was in the drive thru line at McDonalds when she gave directions to a man driving what turned out later to be a stolen vehicle.

Friday around 10:30 p.m. a SUV pulled along side Lubrano’s vehicle and the driver asked for directions to the interstate. Lubrano gave the driver the directions, but said she had to repeat them several times as the driver was having trouble understanding them.

Officer Lubrano said when the SUV drove off, she ran the license plate and found the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Kenner on March 5.

The driver was arrested shortly after by other officers that had been alerted.
