COLLEGE STATION (September 29, 2013)--One man was arrested after a bus was stolen overnight at Easterwood Airport in College Station.
The 22-passenger bus was stolen after a man drove his vehicle through a pedestrian gate early Saturday morning.
The man then drove the stolen bus across runaways at the airport near the Texas A&M University campus.
Surveillance video showed the man near an American Eagle commuter plane and a security seal on the door was found to be broken.
David Cooper Thurmond, 54, of Bryan, was arrested after an airport worker confronted him.
He was jailed, charged with theft, assault and criminal trespass.
The plane was inspected and its departure to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport delayed three hours.
