Two Dutch policemen were embarrassed when a burglar stole their patrol car as they chased his getaway driver on foot. The officers pulled up in Bergen op Zoom because they saw a car parked, outside a house, with a man waiting inside. They got out of the car and walked over to the driver to ask what he was up to. The driver saw the two men coming and sped off, followed by the two policemen on foot. Meanwhile, the burglar came out of the front door of a house, saw that his driver had gone, jumped into police car and drove away.
