A Hernando County man is facing Grand Theft Auto charges after he allegedly stole an ambulance from the Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville early Easter Sunday morning.

Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer (PIO) Michael Terry said that just after midnight on April 4, an ambulance owned by the Hernando County Fire & Emergency Services was taken from the ambulance bay at Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville.

The vehicle was later recovered in the Port Court area in Spring Hill after it became stuck in mud and sand as it approached a nearby body of water off of Port Court.

According to Terry, Trey Cornwell allegedly drove the ambulance from the hospital to the Kass Circle area off Port Court. Witnesses at the scene said that after the vehicle became stuck, Cornwell fled through a nearby shopping plaza.

Law enforcement personnel later arrested Cornwell and charged him with Grand Theft Auto.

He was transported to the Hernando County Detention Center where he’s being held in lieu of a $10,000 bond, Terry said.
