A hospital patient is wanted in Virginia after he walked out of his treatment and stole an ambulance while still wearing a hospital gown and with an IV still in his arm on Monday, authorities said.

The theft happened around 9:30 p.m. outside Inova Fairfax Hospital, where the suspect had been receiving treatment following a vehicle crash on I-66, the Fairfax County Police Department said.

“While not yet discharged, he walked away from treatment with an IV in arm, jumped in a private transport ambulance and stole it,” the department said, adding a photo of the suspect taken inside the ambulance.

While the ambulance was later recovered, police have yet to find the suspect.
