    Two Women Take Cop Car for Joyride in Queens

    Two women are on the lam after they stole a police car in Queens and took it for a spin, police said.

    Officers from the 105th Precinct pulled over a van that matched the description of a stolen vehicle near the Belt Parkway in Laurelton at 3pm on Thursday.

    The driver, identified as Arthur Goines, 35, of Jamaica, began fighting with the two officers and ran from the scene.

    When the two officers chased after Goines, two women from the van jumped out and over to the police car, which was still running. 

    The two women fled with the car and drove it for twelve blocks before ditching it. They are being sought for grand larceny-auto charges.

    Goines was charged with resisting arrest, grand larceny-auto, criminal possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance. 

    According to police sources, the officers involved with the flub will not be facing any charges.
