A man is behind bars after police say he stole a running ambulance from Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas late Thursday morning.
Dallas police said a 19-year-old man hopped into a running Allegiance Ambulance parked outside the hospital at about 11:55 a.m. and drove away.
Not long after the theft Dallas police were called and located the ambulance.
Officers followed the driver to NorthPark Center, a little more than five miles from the hospital, where a “high-risk traffic stop” was conducted near a parking garage on the northeast side of the shopping center.
The driver surrendered and was taken into custody.
No further information has been released and the investigation into the theft is ongoing.
