Police in Metro Detroit are trying to locate two cargo vans that were stolen from a dry cleaner in Detroit—and the vehicles had some notable belongings inside: dozens of police and firefighter uniforms. Whoops!


The two white cargo vans were sitting in the parking lot of Perfect Cleaners (whatta name) in Detroit, and they contained “dozens of police and firefighter uniforms from the cities of Novi and Farmington Hills, reports the CBS outlet in Detroit.

The clothing has been recovered, police said, but the vans have yet to be found. Here’s more from WDIV in Detroit:

The uniforms were found later Friday morning dumped near Outer Drive and Lindsay Street in Detroit. Several pieces of clothing were found in plastic wrap or in nylon dry cleaning bags in various colors, police said.


Detroit police are still searching for the vans. The vans are described as a white Chevrolet Express van with rear and front end damage and a white GMC Savana van. The Chevrolet Express van has license plate CE82871 and the GMC Savana van has license plate DB46109.

There’s no surveillance camera at the dry-cleaner, reports CBS, but I bet the super cunning thieves are going to be located in short order.
