(Salem, OR)  --  A Salem woman is in custody, after police say she was able to manipulate her handcuffs enough to steal a patrol car.  Authorities say 25-year-old Rebecca Payne was arrested yesterday at a motel on Hawthorne Avenue Northeast, and was able to slide a pair of cuffs off her legs and over her feet, then jump in the front seat of the patrol car and drive off.  Officers chased Payne for a short distance, but she was driving erratically and crashed the patrol car near Sunnyview Road Northeast and Childs Avenue Northeast.  Officials say a K-9 unit found Payne where she was hiding nearby, and she was arrested.
