WEST SUMMERLAND KEY, Fla. – Two 17-year-olds fled from a juvenile diversion program at a Florida Keys campground in a stolen firetruck.
The teens have been arrested and charged with grand theft auto. The truck belonged to the chief of the Big Pine Key Fire Department.
Authorities say a Camp Sawyer counselor called the Monroe County sheriff's office Monday morning to report that the teens were missing from the site on West Summerland Key. Deputies then learned of the missing fire truck.
The boy, who were only wearing underwear, were caught 90 miles away.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin says she can remember of police cars being stolen, but this is the first case of a stolen firetruck.
