COLORADO SPRINGS – The Colorado Springs Fire Department made an unexpected discovery Monday night during training at Quail Lake.

Firefighters were training with sonar and dive equipment Monday night when they discovered a Toyota Tacoma underwater.

Firefighters recovered the license plates, which revealed the truck was reported stolen in 2013. The truck was found near the boat ramp, which made it a little easier to pull out of the water.

It’s not clear if the truck was green before it sank, but it is now.
