A volunteer firefighter's stolen pickup has been recovered but the emergency light bar on top is missing. The pickup was found Monday evening in a Bellevue grocery parking lot. 24 hours earlier the vehicle had been stolen from a parking lot outside an Omaha restaurant near 75th and Dodge. Bellevue police processed the pickup for clues. It had stolen Iowa plates.

The pickup is used by LaVista Volunteer firefighter Kyle Williams to get to the fire station when an emergency call is sent out. The pickup is equipped with a 47 inch emergency light bar, siren and scanner. Williams said the thieves could have removed the light bar to make the stolen pickup less noticeable. Or to be put on another vehicle by someone wanting to impersonate an officer.

Williams paid for the $1,500 in equipment out of his own pocket. He is usually one of the first volunteers to respond to either a fire or rescue call.
