Del City, OK – Woman arrested after theft of ambulance
DEL CITY, Okla. (AP) The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a woman looking for her ex-boyfriend stole an ambulance and led troopers on a 50-mile chase from Shawnee to Del City.
Troopers say 28-year-old Mindy Jones was at the hospital for a blood test after she was arrested following for driving under the influence and hit-and-run. Officers say she ran from the hospital and drove away in the ambulance about 2:30 a.m. Friday.
She was spotted in Interstate 40 and troopers followed her to a home in Del City where she stopped in the yard and was arrested.
While in handcuffs Jones told television station KOCO she "had the ambulance and had a pretty good time driving" it.
Jones was taken to the Oklahoma County jail. Records do not indicate whether she has yet hired an attorney.
