FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – A Colorado State University student accused of stealing an ambulance appeared in court on Friday morning.

Investigators say Stefan Sortland, an 18-year-old sophomore, stole the ambulance from a parking lot on the Fort Collins campus on Sunday and drove it to Loveland.

Paramedics went inside a building for about 25 minutes and when they came out, their ambulance was gone.

Police were able to track the ambulance through its GPS system.

Loveland police say the 18-year-old was next to the ambulance wearing the EMT’s safety vest and would not follow commands when they caught up with him.
