The deputy commander of the Central District of the Israel Police ordered the appointment of an investigating officer to investigate a serious incident last night, during which a police car was stolen by a civilian, after it was left unattended at the entrance to the Petah Tikva station. The car and the citizen were soon located near the settlement of Ali Zahav, and the theft suspect was arrested.

A preliminary inspection revealed that a policewoman in the compulsory service (Shaham), who was asked to hand over bags from Netanya station to Petah Tikva station, parked the car without shutting down the engine, and without locking the car doors, and entered the station diary to hand over the bags. There was a long weapon left in the vehicle.
