A man is behind bars after police say he tried to steal an ambulance.
Police say an EMSA crew was responding to an emergency at an apartment complex near 41st and 129th East Avenue. When they arrived, 24-year-old Ryan Pugh jumped inside the ambulance and started backing up.
Police say he made it 40 to 50 yards before hitting three parked cars and they were able to stop him. Another ambulance had to be brought in for the original medical call.
Pugh is being held on complaints of attempted auto theft and DUI.
