Police officers from Jelenia Góra detained a 34-year-old man suspected of stealing a bus after a chase. The vehicle was recovered immediately after the incident. The thief took advantage of the moment of inattention of the vehicle owner in the parking lot in front of the market.

The incident took place on Monday around 12 o’clock. The police officer in Jelenia Góra in Lower Silesia was informed about the theft of a Volkswagen transporter in the parking lot of one of the grocery discount stores in nearby Mysłakowice.

– The driver of the bus was traveling with a group of cyclists, and when one of them felt bad, the man in the parking lot got out of the car for a moment to check what was happening to the cyclist. The 34-year-old took advantage of this moment, got into the car and drove away. The value of the stolen car was estimated at over PLN 40,000 – says Edyta Bagrowska, spokeswoman for the Jelenia Góra police.

The chase ended in a collision

The duty officer passed the information to patrols, and they began searching for the vehicle. Effectively, several minutes after receiving the notification, the officers noticed a white bus in Radomierz, on the national road No. 3.
