According to the police report, an EMS squad was transporting two individuals complaining of chest pains to St. Mary’s hospital when the patients began to act paranoid. The individuals attempted to exit the vehicle through the backdoor but failed, then exited through the front door while the vehicle was on East Mall Road. The call was then cleared and the squad continued toward Huntington.

One of the workers noticed his personal cell phone was missing shortly after the incident, then pinged it with Find My iPhone, which showed the phone was located near the McDonald’s on mall road.

Officers made contact with both individuals from the ambulance ride at the McDonalds, and they both denied having anything to do with the missing cell phone. The phone was located in the men’s restroom with a medical card with the name of one of the people who escaped the ambulance, Matthew Ray Lovins.

Lovins was placed under arrest and charged with grand larceny. He was housed at Western Regional Jail.
