CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. (CNN) - Police are looking for a man who recorded himself stealing a police car and posted it on social media.

The video has been posted on Instagram and World Star Hip Hop. Nearly every comment on the post is saying the man in the video was foolish to record himself stealing a Clayton County police car to take it on a joyride.

Police say the car door was open and the engine was running because the officer it belongs to had just jumped out to chase a suspect into a neighborhood

The joyrider brought the car back before the officer even noticed it was gone, so police had no idea this had happened until someone posted the video on social media last week. Police say the video was recorded back in July.

Now, police are hoping someone can identify the man so they can charge him for taking the car.
