A man was taken into police custody after stealing an ambulance.
On Friday Sheshatshiu RCMP received a report of a stolen ambulance. The ambulance had attended a residence following a call for service and was stolen by a man who was at the residence.
Police located the ambulance speeding along Mackenzie Drive. Officers attempted to stop the ambulance using emergency police lights and sirens. The driver did not stop for police and continued a short distance before losing control while turning onto Shimun Street, coming to rest in a snow bank on the opposite side of the road.
The driver, a 35-year-old man, sustained no injuries. Officers determined he was impaired by alcohol. He was transported to the detachment and failed to provide proper breath samples.
