A man stole an emergency radio from a Pasadena (CA) Fire Department truck on Wednesday, reports PasadenaNow.com.
The radio was taken at about 11:15 a.m. from Truck 31 while it was at Station 36 for a training exercise, officials say.
Firefighters saw the thief as he was driving away but did not give chase. They then reported it to the police. The radio was quickly disabled, thwarting any nefarious action the suspect may have taken.
