UPDATE: Arlington Heights Fire Department ambulance recovered with offender in custody just south of Rantoul, Illinois near Champaign, Illinois. The vehicle was stopped with one or two front tires blown. Otherwise there is apparently no known damage to the vehicle. The ambulance was a reserve ambulance, a half white and half red older model. The reserve ambulance was being used for front line service at the time it was stolen.

The female is in custody with the Rantoul Police Department, and is believed to be a known local of Arlington Heights — possibly a homeless person.
