    South Carolina police officer pulls over stolen car — his own
    CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — An off-duty police officer on a Sunday drive saw something awfully familiar — his recently stolen Volkswagen Jetta.
    North Charleston patrolman Ethan Bernardi whipped his cruiser around and pulled over the stolen vehicle. He called other deputies, who arrested three suspects, police said.

    "One of the advantages to having off-duty police officers using their patrol cars while off-duty is that they are able to respond to crimes when needed," North Charleston Police Chief Jon Zumalt said.

    Investigators don't know how the suspects got the car, which was recently stolen from Bernardi's home.

    The driver, Vicki K. Grooms, 42, and two passengers were charged with possession of a stolen vehicle.
