LOUDON, N.H. — A man stole an ambulance outside Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia yesterday and drove off before the Loudon police arrested him by using a TASER in the middle of Route 106.
Stephen Cummings Jr., 26, faces felony charges of reckless conduct and receiving stolen property after jumping into the ambulance as he left the hospital, the police said. The ambulance was running in the emergency room parking lot as two employees were inside fetching a patient to transfer to a local nursing home, authorities said.
