STANDOFF – A Blood Tribe resident is facing a handful of charges after stealing an ambulance, causing an accident and leaving the scene.

Emergency Medical Services were called to assess a person in custody at the Blood Tribe Police Service building on Jan. 9, between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.

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

The ambulance was reported to have struck a vehicle along Highway 2 a short time later, where the driver 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 Jan. 14, where he will then appear in Cardston Provincial Court.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or has information pertaining to it is asked to call the Blood Tribe Police Service at 403-737-3800.
