If you have dreams of riding in a police car, Lake Placid Police Chief James Fansler has just the ticket, although it’s not one most of us would probably try. Just take something from a store without paying for it, and the Lake Placid Police Department will give you a ride in a police car — free of charge.

That’s the tongue-in-cheek joke now shared by many of the retailers in Lake Placid and Fansler’s department with the installation of new signs in the businesses. The blue, black and white signs proudly declare “Free Ride in a Police Car if you Shoplift — Courtesy of the Lake Placid Police Department.”
