INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A 16-year-old male from Evansville, was arrested early Friday morning after he stole an ambulance from an Indianapolis hospital.
The teen was arrested for auto theft, receiving stolen parts, theft, receiving stole property and criminal mischief.
IMPD officials say he didn't want to go to a mental health facility, ran away and then took an ambulance that was parked near St. Francis Hospital South. That is near Stop 11 Road and South Emerson Avenue.
The medic unit belonging to Priority One Ambulance was reportedly parked out back of the business and was left running to provide climate control for the narcotics kept on board.
Police put out an alert and were able to track the vehicle down via GPS in the area of East New York Street and North Chester Avenue.
Police say the teen gave up willingly and was taken into custody.
A report says the ambulance suffered damage to the rear and sides.
A winter storm warning is in effect for most of Central Indiana.
An Illinois man was killed late Thursday when the car he was driving was struck by a semi tractor on I-70 about three miles west of the Cambridge City exit.
It's very rare that a single person can reach across national, racial, and spiritual borders to bring such hope and healing.
