Dash cam images may help Pawtucket Police catch the suspect who they say stole an ambulance.

Maj. Arthur Martins says this man stole a MedTech ambulance early Friday morning. The ambulance company notified police while tracking the stolen vehicle with its installed GPS system.

The ambulance was later found abandoned on Carter Avenue after the thief smashed it into a fence and telephone pole, then took off.

The suspect was caught on the dash cam inside the ambulance.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pawtucket Police at 401-727-9100 and ask for Det. Doran at Extension 742 or Det. Johnston at Ext. 724.
