No signs of KC man accused of stealing squad car
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Two days after a homeless Kansas City man is accused of stealing a police squad car and abandoning it in northern Missouri, investigators say they’ve not seen any signs of the 30-year-old suspect.
Joshua Boyd was charged Thursday in Jackson County with second-degree robbery and resisting arrest in connection with the theft early Wednesday of a Kansas City police cruiser from a gas station after an officer confronted him.
The car was found on Interstate 35 near Pattonsburg, about an hour north of Kansas City, but a shotgun that had been in the vehicle was missing.
Missouri State Highway Patrol spokesman Jake Angle said Friday his agency has received no tips or reports of suspicious activity, which he says is surprising because Boyd was believed to be on foot.
