Jersey City police are investigating the theft of an unmarked police vehicle that was stolen from a lot on Central Avenue near Hutton Street across from the North District police station.

The vehicle, which was spotted in Elizabeth by Elizabeth Police early this morning, is a tan 2000 Jeep Cherokee.  Elizabeth police officers attempted to stop the vehicle – which was occupied by two males – at approximately 4 a.m., however the driver fled the scene at a high rate of speed.  Jersey City’s license plate reader tracked the vehicle entering the city just before 5 a.m.  The investigation is ongoing.
