Cleveland authorities say teen stole, drove transit bus

| No Comments

Cleveland authorities said a 16-year-old boy stole a public transit bus and drove it five miles before being arrested.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is investigating how the teenager entered the bus maintenance facility Thursday morning, reported the Seattle Times. Although the facility is monitored by police and has security fencing and cameras, the teenager was able to start the large bus and leave driving it.

A spokeswoman for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority said starting the bus would have been very difficult for the teen since the bus uses a series of buttons to start and not a key, reported ABC News.

The teen was later spotted in the parked bus, which had a smashed window and mirror, by a transit supervisor, said the spokeswoman.
