A 20-year-old Andover man has been charged with felony theft in Brown County Court after allegedly stealing a car in New Ulm and driving it to the Twin Cities. Justin P. Ekberg had fled from the New Ulm Medical Center Behavioral Health Unit before allegedly stealing a 1994 Buick LeSabre from a residence about a half-mile from the hospital. Authorities say that the car had been left unlocked with the keys in the ignition. It was recovered 2 days later in Ramsey, and Ekberg apparently admitted to stealing it to visit his girlfriend in Ramsey. He claims that he had been drugged by medical center staff at the time, and reportedly apologized to the vehicle’s owner, and offered to pay for the gas used.
