Man accused of stealing Omaha Police cruiser while naked faces nine charges

(Omaha, NE) -- A man accused of stealing an Omaha Police cruiser while naked and leading officers on a chase last week through downtown and north Omaha is now facing nine charges.

Court documents show that the suspect, 24 year old Victor Inigo, was booked into Douglas County Corrections on Friday, and is being held on $87,000 bond.

Inigo faces charges of leaving the scene of a non-injury accident, leaving the scene of an accident involving property damage, attempted robbery, theft amounting to $5,000 or more, receiving $5,000 or more in stolen property, two counts of criminal mischief, willful reckless driving and operating a vehicle to avoid felony arrest.

Omaha Police say around 5:15 Thursday morning, a woman called police about a man chasing her in a car. Investigators say he then got out of the car, got naked, and started jumping on other vehicles — including a semi. They say Inigo then jumped into a police cruiser and drove off.

OPD chased him through the north downtown area, where they say he reached speeds of up to 70 mph and hit several cars. Officers were able to deflate the vehicle’s tires near 60th and Lake streets, bringing the vehicle to a stop.
