A man was arrested on charges of auto theft after allegedly stealing an ambulance before driving himself to a topless dance club, police in Michigan said.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said that they arrested a 51-year-old homeless man of Pontiac, after being accused of stealing the ambulance on Sunday.

The Star ambulance was stolen outside the McLaren Hospital in Pontiac, where attendees had taken a patient on a stretcher to the emergency room.

When they returned outside, the ambulance was gone. The ambulance was left with the keys in the ignition and the engine running, police said.

The ambulance was located through a cell phone that was left inside it by one of the workers, police said.

The driver of the stolen ambulance told police that he was heading to a topless bar, but a phone number to the bar has been disconnected.

The suspect, who is homeless, will be charged with auto theft.
