KAUFMAN COUNTY, Texas — A suspect who stole a Dallas Fire-Rescue ambulance is in custody following a high-speed chase into Louisiana.

The ambulance was originally tracked to the Forney and northwest Kaufman County area just before 4:30 p.m. — which prompted a multi-agency search, including the use of a Dallas Police Department helicopter.

Authorities lost the tracking signal but a Texas Game Warden spotted the ambulance in the Lindale, Texas, area.

A high-speed pursuit of the ambulance ended in the Bossier City, Louisiana, area, and involved multiple law enforcement agencies.

At least one person was taken into custody.

Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesperson Jason Evans tells inForney.com the ambulance was stolen from Station 53. We are awaiting additional details from Dallas Fire-Rescue.
