After responding to a medical call early Saturday morning, Honolulu (HI) Fire Department (HFD) firefighters discovered their truck had been stolen, reports hawaiinewsnow.com.
Department officials say personnel responded to a medical call at a home on Farrington Highway at around 3:30 a.m. Upon arrival, HFD entered the home and left the ladder truck running with its lights on—standard procedure in such emergencies.
Officials say the crew exited the home at 4 a.m. when they discovered the truck was gone and immediately notified police.
Authorities said officers found the fire truck and the suspect, who was promptly arrested, minutes later at a 7-11 in Makaha. No injuries—and nothing missing and no damage to the truck—were reported.
