April 21, 2011 |  7:34 am

Three Glendale police officers who took a patrol car on a joyride to Las Vegas have left their jobs after a weeks-long misconduct investigation, a city spokesman said.

Tom Lorenz confirmed that Officers Patrick Hamblin, Fernando Salmeron and Mike Ullerich were no longer employees of the city, but declined to say for what cause.

Salmeron and Ullerich were officially “separated” from the city as of March 29, and Hamblin on April 1, Lorenz said.

“They are no longer employees,” Lorenz said. “They are no longer on the payroll for the city.”
