Man in tears after his Converted Ambulance Mobile House is Stolen


Alexander Parker, a Washington resident, recently bought an ambulance that he converted to a motorhome. The vehicle was nicknamed Luanne by Parker. The vehicle was stolen while he was in Arizona on business.

“I parked Luanne at a hotel that had surveillance and had security and all that and then flew out to Arizona for my job, and I started getting alerts,” Alexander, 31, told Inside Edition Digital.

“So I call security at the hotel. I’m like, ‘could you please check on my motor home that I parked out there? It’s an ambulance. You can’t miss it,’”He said.  They called back thirty minutes later and were like ‘We don’t see an ambulance out there. You need to call the police.’”

The thieves took his home and all of its contents. He also claims they used his credit card to buy a new house. 

“And then I started getting alerts from my bank and my credit cards that a shopping spree was happening,” Alexander explained. “ Somebody was shopping at Macy’s and JCPenney and basically going on a mall shopping spree. Buying gas for themselves, and that sort of thing.”

Alexander was not only going through this, but he was also dealing with it at work.  

“I had to step away from the work that I was doing, hide myself in a closet, try not to cry while I’m calling the police, the credit cards, the banks, locking everything, taking care of everything,”He said.  “It just took hours. All my stuff was in there too.”

Alexander had just purchased the ambulance. He said the ambulance was only just finished and that he was learning how to use it. He was also about for a cross country road trip.

Alexander claims that he researched small houses and mobile homes before deciding on an ambulance because it was special. 

“I just knew it would be easier and more exciting and interesting than just a regular van,”He said. “But also, I had seen online that people who had done this before, they never really got bothered, and they never had break-ins because who’s going to break into an ambulance? Who’s going to steal an ambulance? That’s just bad luck.”

Alexander said that Luanne was a part of his desire to create memories with Doc, his travel companion and canine friend.

“Doc is my bud,”Alex explained. “ I mean, between me, my dog, and my truck, that’s my family. And now I’m going back to the Seattle area, and my family’s broken. There’s a piece of my family missing now. I don’t have the truck. And I want to give the dog the best life possible. I wanted to be able to take a dog to cool places.”

He says he’s filed a police report, but nothing has come of it as the police consider this case is a low priority. 

“I guess they just see it as vehicle theft. But this is my motor home. This is my things. This is where I spend the majority of my time. And it’s really frustrating.”

Alexander confirmed to Inside Editon Digital, that police were in touch with him. They are now looking into surveillance of where the suspects have used their credit cards. 

His only possessions right now are the things he took on his work trip, and some stuff in storage. Now, he must decide where to live. Alexander said that he would have to continue spending money on Airbnbs until he could figure out where to live. 

Alexander established a GoFundMeTo help with expenses. And he’s just trying to get back on his feet while also searching for answers about Luanne.

“It’s tough,”He notes. “The ambulance was one of the best things I’ve ever created. It took a long time for it to get to me with all the repairs and with the build. So it’s really – yeah, it’s devastating. It’s heartbreaking.”
