VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida man is accused of stealing an ambulance from outside a hospital while crewmembers were dropping off a patient. 

Body camera footage shows police apprehending Keith Peacock, 63, after authorities tracked the ambulance using a GPS locator, according to WESH

The ambulance crew told police Peacock had asked them for a ride earlier while they were transporting a patient. 

While crewmembers were inside the hospital, Peacock allegedly tried to get into the front door of the ambulance, a witness told police. When he was unable to get in through the front, he allegedly climbed in the back and drove away in the rig. 

Peacock now faces a charge of grand theft.
