Police car prepped for action movie stolen with explosives inside
NEW ORLEANS- Police issued a warning Monday evening about a stolen, mock police car that was part of a movie shooting near the city's Central Business District.
Police said the vehicle contained explosives. The explosives create small holes, mimicking bullet holes when detonated.
The Ford Crown Victoria looks like a police car, but does not have official NOPD markings. However, it can not be driven, so police said it is likely that it was towed from the location.
A release to media suggested to "use caution if located."
The car was being used in the production of American Heist.
Police said the stolen cruiser is similar to the one in the picture attached to this story.
