A Syracuse Fire Department pickup truck stolen early Friday morning was found using the vehicle’s GPS heading onto the New York State Thruway, fire officials said.
The truck was stolen at about 1 a.m. from in front of a residence in the 100 block of North Edwards Avenue in the city’s Eastwood neighborhood, Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jon Seeber said.
A fire crew was inside the home treating a patient when an American Medical Response (AMR) ambulance crew noticed the truck was being driven off, Syracuse fire officials said in a news release Friday afternoon.
The crews alerted Onondaga County 911 Center dispatchers of the stolen truck. The truck, stolen by Nathan Kane, 23, of Syracuse, was tracked by GPS heading onto the Thruway, fire officials said.
