A Philadelphia police car in Center City.

Philadelphia police spotted something more out of the ordinary than traffic on a Philadelphia-area expressway this Thanksgiving. 

A New York City police cruiser, riddled with bullet holes and a broken windshield, was on a city expressway just west of the city on Thursday morning when officers tried to stop it, only to have the driver flee. Police said the car was later found abandoned at the 4300 block of Montgomery Drive.

But the vehicle was apparently just a stolen prop taken from a film set in Chester County, according to police.

It was apparently being used in the new film "17 Bridges," starring Black Panther's Chad Boseman, which has been filming some scenes in the area since September. We've spotted the movie in Rittenhouse and Chinatown

No arrests had been made or further information was released as of Friday afternoon, according to police.
