Texas Woman Leads Louisiana State Police on High Speed Pursuit in Stolen Ambulance
Published February 2, 2020
From Louisiana State Police – A woman from Texas is under arrest after she was found to be in possession of a stolen ambulance from Dallas, Texas.
On February 2, 2020, Troopers assigned to Louisiana State Police Troop G were notified to be on the lookout for a stolen ambulance from Dallas, Texas. The ambulance was last seen traveling east on Interstate 20 in Texas. Shortly before 5:45 p.m., Troopers located the stolen ambulance on Interstate 20 around mile post 8 and attempted a traffic stop. The driver, later identified as 19-year-old Kendall Tyson of Dallas, Texas, failed to stop and a high speed pursuit ensued. Troopers pursued the vehicle eastbound on Interstate 20 through Caddo Parish and into Bossier Parish. The pursuit encountered slowed traffic which enabled the Troopers to bring the pursuit to an end near the Airline Drive exit. Tyson was taken into custody without incident.
Once in custody, Troopers observed Tyson to have an obvious impairment level which prompted the conduction of sobriety tests. She was booked into Bossier Maximum Jail and charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, aggravated flight, resisting by false information, misrepresentation during booking, driving while intoxicated, and no driver’s license.
Louisiana State Police will always remain present on the highways throughout the state. Proactive enforcement reminds the public to obey all traffic laws and reduces criminal activity. Louisiana State Police is proud of the hard work and dedication of our Troopers.
