A Texas man has been arrested after he reportedly stole an ambulance from a psych hospital to get food and cigarettes.
The ambulance was stolen from outside Cypress Creek Hospital, which is a mental health facility, deputies with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities were able to track down the ambulance to a gas station miles south of that location.
When deputies arrived, they opened the door to the ambulance and found the suspect inside with fried chicken and cigarettes. They asked why he stole the vehicle, and he said he needed a ride.
The man was reportedly a previous patient at the mental health facility.
