The ambulance was taken around 6:30 p.m. after medics responded to a call in a Dayton neighborhood, WHIO reported. The keys were in the ignition when the suspect made his way into the driver's seat of the ambulance and took off, according to a Dayton police report.
Dayton police finally were able to stop the ambulance a little over a mile from where it was stolen, WHIO reported.
