PATTONSBURG, MO (KCTV) -

While the man accused of stealing a Kansas City, MO, Police Department vehicle is still on the loose, prosecutors have charged him.

Joshua Boyd, 30, is charged with robbery and resisting arrest.

Boyd is accused of stealing an officer's car Wednesday morning from a gas station at 37th and Main streets. The car was later found abandoned near Pattonsburg in Daviess County, MO. The shotgun from the car was missing.

According to court records, Boyd called his father and told him he was driving a stolen police car and was upset it wouldn't go faster than 130 miles per hour.

Boyd has not been found and should be considered armed and dangerous. Authorities warn that if someone sees him, they should call 911.
