HOUSTON, Texas — A man in Houston was craving KFC and cigarettes, so police say he stole an ambulance to get them.
KTRK reports police were called early Thursday about a man who stole an ambulance. It was allegedly sitting outside of a psychiatric hospital where he used to be a patient.
The keys were in it, and the ambulance was running.
He then ran his errands, and also picked up a bag of Doritos.
“I rolled up on him, opened the door, asked him why he had the ambulance — he said he needed a ride. He backed out, put his hands behind him and I handcuffed him,” said Harris County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Lynwood Moreau.
The man is now in jail, charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
