Police said a fire truck stolen Friday night was spotted several times driving downtown hours later — with the lights and sirens activated.
The truck — a Ford F250 known as a bush buggy — was eventually found Saturday morning parked just a few blocks from where thieves swiped it from a maintenance yard at a fire station in the 1900 block of 18 Ave. N.E. just after 11 p.m.
