Does that area have a lot of drug users? That would be my first guess on who took it, probably emptying the morphine or whatever other pain relievers they carry.

Suburban Philly man accused of stealing ambulance

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) Police have charged a suburban Philadelphia man with swiping an ambulance from outside a hospital.

Authorities say the crew of the Lafayette Ambulance & Rescue squad was in Montgomery Hospital in Norristown dropping off a patient about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday when someone drove off with the ambulance.

About 7:30 p.m., state police spotted the vehicle westbound on Interstate 76, the Schuylkill Expressway, and pulled it over at the Route 202 exit in Upper Merion Township.

Police say they charged the man driving the ambulance, 22-year-old Justin Janaitis, of Norristown, with receiving stolen property and driving under the influence.

Police say it was not immediately clear why Janaitis had taken the ambulance. It also was unclear whether he had a lawyer.


would have posted sooner, but I was working last night....
