A driver was taken into custody after a police pursuit involving a stolen Los Angeles Fire Department vehicle on Friday afternoon.
The Battalion Command fleet vehicle was parked in the downtown L.A. area when it was taken just before 2 p.m., according to an LAFD alert. It was quickly tracked down by law enforcement through the pickup truck’s GPS transponder.
The chase was in the San Pedro area by the time Sky5 first arrived over the scene around 2:40 p.m. At least a half-dozen police vehicles were seen pursuing the Fire Department vehicle on surface streets.
