Chicago Man Asked Cop for Directions In A Car He Just Stole; Arrested

A 35-year-old Chicago man was arrested after asking the police for directions while allegedly driving in a car he had stolen a few minutes earlier.

Lafayette Moore is charged with theft of a motor vehicle, Joliet police said in a statement.

The car was stolen from a BP Amoco gas station at 6 McDonough Street about 4:18 p.m. Friday, according to police. The owner left the vehicle running as he went inside to buy things, and it was gone when he came outside the store.

Moore allegedly pulled up in the stolen vehicle and asked the officer for directions to Interstate 80 while an officer was investigating a crash near Briggs Street and Spencer Road, according to police.

According to authorities, the officer gave Moore directions and noticed that the vehicle he was driving fit the description of the stolen vehicle.

Moore was apprehended without incident, according to authorities.
