A 20-year-old man was arrested after police say he tried to steal a Fort Pierce, FL, police patrol vehicle at the Fort Pierce Police Department with a police officer sitting in it, reports USA Today.

It happened about 5 a.m. on July 17 as Officer Robie Troutman was in his patrol vehicle at the main police station writing a report, according to his report.

When Troutman heard the car's door handles being rattled he opened his door and reported seeing a man later identified as Aaron Orlando Rodriguez III run away and hide behind another vehicle.

Troutman and another officer detained Rodriguez and found two cellphones, a portable speaker, a $20 bill, and a pipe with marijuana residue.

"Rodriguez said he saw my vehicle was running so he attempted to steal the vehicle so he had a ride home," Troutman's report said.

As Marion Morrison (John Wayne for you millennials) once said: "You can't fix stupid!" As our society falls deeper into a pile of legalized dope, this is the type of idiot that will be out there. I sure miss the old time crooks we used to deal with.
