WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Nov. 5 (UPI) -- A man and woman charged with stealing a police car left running outside a Florida convenience store apparently wanted it for a quickie sexual encounter.

Alexander Pratt, 59, and Clara Pearson, 53, both Lake Worth residents, were charged with grand theft auto, The Palm Beach Post reported. They allegedly grabbed a Honda Civic belonging to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office that was being used by plainclothes detectives from the auto theft division.

The couple did not get far in their new wheels, a police report said. They were pulled over and arrested not far away.

Pratt told officers he was not sorry for his actions because he was eager to "have intimate relations with Pearson," a police affidavit said.
