COLUMBUS, Ohio — Police in Ohio’s capital city say a man stole a police cruiser just minutes after officers revived him from an overdose.

In a Facebook post on Friday, Columbus police were searching for 25-year-old Jeremy Davis who crashed the cruiser and then ran away.

The Columbus Dispatch reports officers responded to a home Friday morning after being called about an overdose.

Officers revived Davis and then put him in an ambulance while officers checked whether he had any outstanding arrest warrants.

Police say Davis then ran out of the ambulance, stole the cruiser and crashed just a few miles away.
