It looks like a few LAPD cadets watched Police Academy one too many times. According to the LA times, three teenage boys stole two police cruisers and lead police on separate chases that  both ended in crashes. The teens were a part of the cadet program that looks to teach life skills and strong relationships between the police and the communities they serve.

The teens were able to bypass the automated sign-out system for the cars by somehow using the credentials of a sergeant that was on vacation. A third car that was also taken by the cadets was found later with two stun guns and two radios inside.

“We’re going to look at this, we’re going to look at how they did it, and we’re going to make sure it can’t be done again,” Chief Charlie Beck said.
