Woman steals ambulance

A woman who stole an ambulance and took it on a ride in Oklahoma City was arrested early Saturday, police reported.

The driver, identified as Erica Toledo, 22, was arrested and taken to the Oklahoma County jail.

About 1 a.m. Saturday, the ambulance was stolen from Southwest Integris Medical Center. It was located near Grand Boulevard and S Pennsylvania Avenue. A police officer tried to stop the driver as she drove around the area for about 20 minutes until officers used stop sticks to puncture the tires. The woman was arrested near SW 24 and S Broadway.

Toledo remained in jail Monday on a complaint of larceny of a vehicle, in lieu of $2,000 bail.

Police said the keys had been left in the ambulance at the hospital.

It was not the first time an ambulance has been stolen in Oklahoma City.

In 2013, a 16-year-old boy stole an EMSA ambulance at SW 59 and S Western Avenue. The boy drove up to 79 mph before the vehicle struck a utility pole and overturned. The boy, who was injured, was taken to a juvenile detention center.
