A man is in custody after he allegedly stole an ambulance with a patient still inside in Shawnee and led law enforcement officials on a chase.
Police officials said a woman in the back of the ambulance was signaling to officers through a window as the chase continued through the area and onto Interstate 40.
Officials set up stop sticks at mile marker 212. The suspect hit the stop sticks but managed to keep going. He started to get off at mile marker 217, but got back on the interstate, going east with the patient still in the ambulance.
Authorities caught up to the suspect and took him into custody.
