Man steals ambulance, then tries to steal horses

After getting ambulance stuck, police say suspect broke into a barn


BOAZ, Ala. — Boaz Police say a man injured in a wreck stole an ambulance after being transported to the emergency room. The initial wreck happened Friday in Sardis. Investigators say the man, 24-year-old Matthew Todd of Boaz, was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

Authorities said Todd convinced the staff to go outside for a smoke break but ditched the cigarette and just made a break for it in an ambulance that was already running.

"He got the ambulance stuck at the end of Bernard Street and after that, he entered a barn and a connected pasture and tried to saddle two horses," said Boaz Police Chief Todd Adams. When that failed, he stole an SUV and crashed and totaled it. He found a second vehicle, stole it and drove home.
