Lethbridge Herald - - ODDS & ENDS -

Blood Tribe Po­lice have charged a man with theft of an am­bu­lance after an in­ci­dent ear­lier this week.

On Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, Blood Tribe EMS were called to as­sess a per­son in cus­tody at the Blood Tribe Po­lice Ser­vice build­ing, they said in a news re­lease Fri­day morn­ing.

While EMS per­son­nel were treat­ing the pa­tient in­side the po­lice build­ing, BTPS say a man walked up to the am­bu­lance that was parked in the BTPS park­ing lot and drove off with it.

A short time later, the am­bu­lance was re­ported to have struck a vehicle along High­way 2, failed to stop at the col­li­sion, and was even­tu­ally lo­cated parked out­side of a res­i­dence in the com­mu­nity of Moses Lake.

Melvin Moun­tain Horse has been charged with theft of the am­bu­lance, dan­ger­ous driv­ing, driv­ing while pro­hib­ited and fail­ing to re­main at the scene of an ac­ci­dent. Moun­tain Horse has been re­manded into cus­tody un­til Mon­day where he will ap­pear in Card­ston provin­cial court.

Any­one who may have wit­nessed this in­ci­dent or has in­for­ma­tion per­tain­ing to this in­ci­dent is asked to call the Blood Tribe Po­lice Ser­vice at 403737-3800.
