TULSA - Police are looking for a man who stole an EMSA ambulance Saturday night.
The vehicle, which was on medical standby for a mixed martial arts event and the River Spirit Casino, was stolen around 8 p.m., EMSA spokeswoman Kelli Bruer said.
The event was postponed temporarily until another ambulance was able to arrive, officials said.
There was not a patient on board and no medics were inside the vehicle at the time, Bruer said.
The ambulance was recovered about 20 minutes later in a residential neighborhood near East 56th Street and Riverside Drive.
The vehicle was not damaged and all equipment was accounted for, Bruer said.
A suspect description has not been made available. No arrests have been made.
