Shop­pers cop this New York po­lice car!

Rutherglen Reformer - - Green FIngers -

The New York City Po­lice De­part­ment is fa­mous the world over, but this squad may have found them­selves a lit­tle lost.

Shop­pers at the Mor­risons store in Cam­bus­lang were left stunned to spot a NYCPD cop car pulling into the car park.

The full-scale replica would not have looked out of place in Fifth Av­enue, at least it would have 20 years ago.

The car ap­pears to be a Chevro­let Caprice, which was the stock ve­hi­cle for the force dur­ing the 1990s.

Shopper Jackie McKenna spot­ted the ve­hi­cle on Sun­day, Septem­ber 25.

She ad­mit­ted to the Re­former she was stunned when she no­ticed it.

She said:“I’ve no idea whose car it was, they were driv­ing away when I took the pic­ture.

“I didn’t know what to think, I was very sur­prised when I saw it.

“I’m a wee bit ob­sessed with New York - I’ve been three times - so it re­ally made my day.”

Jackie posted the pic­ture on the All About Cam­bus­lang Face­book page, and many res­i­dents made light of the ve­hi­cle.

One said:“His sat­nav got a wee bit con­fused.”

An­other wrote:“Maybe Po­lice Scot­land are strug­gling more than we thought.”
