Police Officer Pulls Over His Stolen Car (This is true, it was on the news last week.) South Carolina Police Officer Pulls Over Stolen Car That Turns Out to Be His Own Volkswagen Jetta The Associated Press CHARLESTON, S.C. Jun 6, 2005 An off-duty police officer on a Sunday drive saw something awfully familiar his recently stolen Volkswagen Jetta. North Charleston patrolman Ethan Bernardi whipped his cruiser around and pulled over the stolen vehicle. He called other deputies, who arrested three suspects, police said. "One of the advantages to having off-duty police officers using their patrol cars while off-duty is that they are able to respond to crimes when needed," North Charleston Police Chief Jon Zumalt said. Investigators don't know how the suspects got the car, which was recently stolen from Bernardi's home. The driver, Vicki K. Grooms, 42, and two passengers were charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.
