GARY, Ind. (AP) — Gary police have found a department squad car that had been stolen.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Dawn Westerfield says the squad car was found Tuesday. She says it was stolen earlier in the day while it was locked and its keys weren’t inside.

Westfield says the car had no weapons inside when it was stolen but it contained a mounted police radio and computer.

The department didn’t give details on how the fully marked white Ford Crown Victoria was located. Westerfield says an investigation is continuing.
