A 33-year-old Connecticut man posted bail at the District D-4 police station, then went outside and fell asleep in the front seat of a police cruiser, Boston police said.
Nicholas Cunliffe told officers he was “just looking for a place to sleep,” police said.
At about 2:50 a.m. Sunday, police were flagged down by a man near Hemenway and Boylston streets who said his taxi had just been stolen, police said in a posting on their blog. Officers were able to stop the vehicle a short distance away and placed Cunliffe under arrest.
He was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle, police said.
Shortly after Cunliffe posted bail and left the South End police station, officers found him sleeping in the front seat of a cruiser parked out front, police said.
Cunliffe was then charged with breaking and entering a motor vehicle.
It was unclear how Cunliffe got into the cruiser.Trisha Thadani can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter @TrishaThadani.
