Man steals ambulance, goes to KFC

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (CNN) – All he wanted was some KFC and a smoke – so he stole an ambulance and hit the road.

All you have to do is take a look at the evidence: you can see he snagged some Doritos during his joy ride.

Police in Texas say they got a call early Thursday morning about a man who stole an ambulance.

Apparently, it was sitting outside of a psychiatric hospital where he used to be a patient.

The keys were in it, and the ambulance was running, so he hopped in, grabbed something finger-lickin’ good along with a couple of other things.

Then he headed for the gas station.

“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,” Harris County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Lynwood Moreau said.

Right now the unnamed man is in jail charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
