PLANO — An off-duty Dallas officer's handgun and badge were stolen when an armed man took her vehicle early Thursday morning at a Plano gas station.

A man approached the off-duty officer as she getting gas at about 3:20 a.m. at a station in the 600 block of E. Plano Pkwy., said Ofc. David Tilley, a spokesman with the Plano Police Department.

"The suspect threatened her with a weapon before taking her vehicle," Tilley said.

The woman told police she was a Dallas officer and her handgun and badge were inside the stolen vehicle.

Plano police have not released a suspect description.
