Eau Claire (WQOW) - Police say an Eau Claire man stole a nursing home van and drove it to a strip club 70 miles away.

Charges filed this week say Christopher Wilbanks stole the van from outside Sacred Heart Hospital late last month. An employee of the nursing home, Dove Healthcare, told police he had left the van running because of the cold weather.

When he came back out a few minutes later, it was gone. Officers found the van the next day at a strip club in Trego. That's where they also found Wilbanks, with the keys in his pocket. Police say he told them he had no recollection of stealing the van because he was extremely intoxicated.
