RICHMOND (WRIC)—The Richmond Police Department has located the Richmond Fire and Emergency Services truck that was reported stolen around 9 a.m. on Tuesday.

The mid-size fire truck was taken from a city-owned garage and maintenance facility at 1650 Commerce Road, and belonged to Fire Station #22 at 2420 Brock Road Blvd. The vehicle was located around 9:45 a.m. down the street, at 1615 Commerce Road.

"Right now we're treating it as a crime and we have detectives that are working on it," says Cpt. Marty Harrison. "We'll just follow it as we would any stolen vehicle."

Police have not revealed whether any arrests have been made at this time, but the case remains under investigation and a forensics team is examining the truck.

"Finger print stuff, swabs, different things they can pull if they can figure out it was someone that had the vehicle that wasn't supposed to."

The truck is smaller than standard fire trucks and officers say it usually takes some training to even start the engine, which could narrow the list of suspects.

Anyone with information pertaining to this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Metro Richmond at 804-780-1000.
