GREENVILLE, Ala. (WSFA) - Greenville police say a man wanted in Florida tried to make off with an ambulance but didn’t get far.

Greenville Police Chief Justin Lovvorn said someone stole a Luverne EMS ambulance that was parked at Taco Bell on Fort Dale Road Wednesday afternoon. He said the suspect went into the unlocked vehicle and found the keys.

The chief said the Luverne EMS employees that had parked it “acted appropriately and with diligence in gaining a descriptive physical description.”

According to the arrest warrant, Harriford struck the corner of the Taco Bell as he drove off, damaging the bricks.

Taco Bell management helped Greenville officers go through video surveillance, and in doing so they identified the suspect as Bradley Harriford, Lovvorn said.

Officers made contact with the stolen ambulance on N. College Street. Lovvorn said Harriford tried to flee at first but was then taken into custody without incident.

Police also found out Harriford, 31, is wanted in Florida for probation violation charges.

He is being held in the Butler County jail on charges of first-degree theft of property, probation violation and attempting to elude.
