Brazen thieves stole a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office vehicle Wednesday morning from a gas station at Deans Bridge Road and Meadowbrook Drive, according to a press release.

The unmarked 2014 Chevrolet Impala is black with Georgia tag PKP 1526. The vehicle is equipped with blue lights and other emergency equipment and had no weapons or other equipment in the vehicle at the time of the theft.

The suspects were seen exiting a dark color newer model Lexus ES 350 with a SC tag UPA 715 and entering the Chevrolet Impala.  The Lexus is reported stolen through South Carolina.

Both vehicles then fled the scene and were last seen traveling north on Deans Bridge Road.  Suspects should be considered armed and dangerous and could be linked to other stolen vehicles in the CSRA area.
