A Manassas Park police captain has been charged with stealing an emergency vehicle from the Prince William County Fire and Rescue Department, authorities said Monday.

Capt. Travis D. Mosher, 30, turned himself in to county police Saturday night and was charged with grand larceny and petty larceny, police said.

Just after 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Prince William police were called to investigate the theft of a 2005 Ford Excursion from a fire and rescue station at 1300 F St. in Woodbridge. Police said the vehicle was assigned to a battalion fire chief.

The vehicle was found near Golansky Boulevard and Prince William Parkway in Woodbridge.

Mosher is to appear in court Feb. 10.

    Quiz- Which of the following reasons did the Captain take the fire vehicle?
    A.) He thought it would teach the Battalion Chief a lesson for leaving keys in an unattended vehicle
    B.) He thought the vehicle was assigned to a freind of his at the station and merely moved the vehicle a short distance as a gag
    C.) The City took away the Captain's take-home and he was pissed
    D.) He was drunk and it seemed like a good idea at the time
    E.) All of the above

    Hey, the article was lacking so much info, I figured I'd try to fill in the gaps myself.

    This is all a big misunderstanding, the Fire guys in their rush to get into the station before Oprah came on left the vehicle running and the police officer was simply taking it to get it washed and filled with gas. A medical call came out so the nice officer stopped what he was doing since he is the only "first responder" available to go and secure the scene for the five or six firemen that were waiting at the station to respond until they got the all clear that it was now safe to respond to the slightly cranky 77 year old female who had fallen down in her kitchen. He would have got it back after that if he had not had to go and check to make sure the neighborhood was a nice one for the firemen to respond to the cat in the tree next.
