A Lake Township man discharged from Mercy Medical Center reportedly tried to steal a Plain Township Fire Department Medic Unit from the emergency room bay early Wednesday morning.

The man then ran away when security officers and nurses approached him, Stark County Jail records show.

According to the jail records, the man had just been released from the hospital. The records do not say when nor why he had been admitted.

Canton police reports show he is accused of trying to take Plain Township vehicle at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday.

He was jailed on a felony charge of attempted grand theft of a motor vehicle. He was released on his own recognizance about four hours later, pending a Canton Municipal Court hearing.
