Ambulance recovered shortly after being stolen in Daly City

An ambulance that was responding to a medical call in Daly City early Monday morning was stolen and apparently taken for a quick joy ride before it was recovered, Daly City police said.

The ambulance was taken around 12:20 a.m. from the 500 block of Schwerin Street, Daly City police Sgt. Harold Rolfes said.

The ambulance was found a short time later about two blocks away and was undamaged, Rolfes said.

No suspects are in custody in connection with the brief theft, he said.ambulanceBay Area NewsDaly CityPeninsulaSgt. Harold Rolfes
