JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A rescue unit belonging to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department appears to have been stolen and taken for a ride early Saturday morning.
A security guard from St. Vincent's Hospital in Riverside told First Coast News the incident began at approximately 2:30 a.m. when paramedics were inside with a patient.
The unit was later discovered abandoned a few blocks away on St. Johns Avenue. It was then spotted parked at fire station #5 by a First Coast News crew.
A spokesman for the JFRD would not confirm if the theft took place, saying it would be the responsibility of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office to investigate.
FCN is working to get more information from the JSO.
