DALY CITY, Calif. (AP) — Police in Northern California are searching for suspects who stole an ambulance while paramedics were helping a patient.

Daly City Police say paramedics were inside a home early Monday morning tending to someone experiencing blood sugar issues related to diabetes and didn't need to be taken to a hospital.

After the paramedics treated the patient and stepped outside the home, they discovered their American Medical Response ambulance was no longer there.

Police say the vehicle was recovered within five minutes a couple blocks away with small items missing.

Authorities say the 911 call to bring the paramedics to the home was legitimate. They would not say what was taken.

The incident is under investigation. No arrests have been made.
