Police in Delaware say they arrested a woman on Tuesday for joyriding in a fire company pickup truck right after she had been released from police custody on an unrelated matter. 

Cuve Harding, 43, was detained Monday night for failing to show up for court for traffic citations. Fire officials didn't know the bright red, fully marked truck was gone from the parking lot of New Castle County police headquarters until they received word it was in an accident. 

Police believe a spare key may have been inside the vehicle.

Police eventually arrested Harding after she tried to return it. 

Harding, of Hockessin, Delaware, is charged with motor vehicle theft and related offenses.
