HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WSAV) — Police arrested a man for allegedly stealing an ambulance and a fire uniform Friday afternoon.
The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO), says it arrested Carlos Colon and charged him with grand larceny of a motor vehicle and failure to stop for blue lights.
Police say the 20-year-old man was wearing a stolen Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue uniform and was charged with petit larceny as well.
