A shirtless, “highly intoxicated” man stole a Whitewater Rescue ambulance parked at the fire department and knocked over a sign, according to a criminal complaint filed in Walworth County Court. Prosecutors charged Andrew A. Dufek, 21, of 956 W. Conger St., Whitewater, on July 2 with burglary and operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent. At about 1:50?a.m. June 26, Whitewater police saw an ambulance with its engine running in the parking lot of Second Salem Brewing Co., which was closed. Officers knew of no recent rescue calls, but they had heard about an ambulance driving downtown without operating headlights or taillights, according to the complaint. Then a shirtless Dufek came “stumbling” from the Second Salem patio area, the complaint states.
