A Choctaw County ambulance crew was treating a man inside his home in Soper late Sunday night when a young man jumped in the Ambulance and fled the scene. The suspect stole medication and equipment from the Ambulance after abandoning it south of Soper. A family member had to drive the patient to the hospital in Paris, where he later died. The OSBI is assisting in the investigation of this case. Officials did not release the victim’s name. Anyone with information should call the Choctaw County Sheriff at 580-326-2130.
At 11:27 pm, one of our Ambulances was stolen from a Soper residence as we were responding to a 911 call. As my medics were in the home getting and treating the patient, a young male jumped in the Ambulance and took off toward Soper south to abandon the Ambulance and stole medicine and supplies. If you have any information or can identify this suspect, please contact the Sheriff’s office immediately (580) 326-2130.
