Transit group says teen stole, drove Cleveland bus



Published: Fri, October 12, 2012 @ 9:45 a.m.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities in Cleveland say a 16-year-old boy stole a public bus from a maintenance facility and apparently drove at least five miles before being spotted and arrested.

The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reports the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is investigating how the teen was able to enter the large facility, start the bus and leave with it early Thursday morning. The facility is patrolled by police at night and has security fencing and cameras that caught part of the incident.

An RTA spokeswoman says it would’ve been complicated to start the bus because it uses a series of buttons, not keys.

She says the teen was behind the wheel when an RTA supervisor later spotted the parked bus, which had a cracked window and a smashed mirror.
