MT. VERNON, Kentucky (WFLA/CNN) – A Kentucky woman is charged with criminal mischief and theft after authorities say the impatient woman stole an ambulance that was outside of a hospital.
Apparently, she got tired of waiting on her sister who was supposed to pick her up outside of the hospital, according to a WYMT report.
Pamela Cash, 51, took the emergency vehicle, which was left running while hospital workers prepared to transport a patient.
“That was odd. That’s the first for me,” Mt. Vernon Police Chief Brian Carter told WYMT. “I’ve been doing this for 15 years. Never had anything like that.”
Cash drove the ambulance to a church three miles away.
A woman inside the church noticed Cash looking inside their personal cars and stopped her.
Police believe Cash was looking into other cars in an attempt to find keys to drive a car away.
But before she could do that, police arrived and took her to jail. She was charged with criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking over $10,000.
