Police have arrested a person suspected of stealing a fire truck and traveling through several cities before being detained Tuesday in Anaheim.
Truck 85 was stolen from UCI Medical Center in Orange at approximately 1:40 a.m. while paramedics were taking a patient to the hospital, said Capt. Greg Barta of the Orange County Fire Authority.
“As they were dropping off a patient at the hospital the truck was stolen,” Barta told City News Service.
The suspect traveled through many Orange County communities, including Fountain Valley and Irvine, before finally stopping in Anaheim near Ball Road and Brookhurst Street just after 3 a.m. when officers from the Anaheim Police Department took the suspect into custody.
