Man arrested after stealing ambulance in Chattanooga

A man has been arrested after stealing an ambulance from Erlanger hospital this afternoon, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office officials say.

A call was received by Hamilton County 911 at 2:09 p.m. regarding an ambulance from Memorial Healthcare being stolen from Erlanger Hospital Emergency Room parking lot.

The driver of the Memorial Hospital ambulance told deputies he dropped a patient off at Erlanger’s emergency room and then pulled the ambulance out of the way due to the amount of ambulance traffic. While he was in the rear of the vehicle cleaning, someone jumped into the driver’s seat and pulled out of the lot into traffic.
