A Grande Prairie man is facing charges after allegedly taking a joyride in an ambulance stolen from the healthcare centre in Bonnyville. Mounties say it was taken the evening of May 1st and was later spotted driving west down a highway with its emergency lights on.
The RCMP was able to use a tire deflation device and some tactical contact to put a stop to the vehicle. It’s reported the driver then tried to get away on foot but was quickly caught.
