CLEVELAND (October 12, 2012)--A 16-year-old boy stole a public bus from a maintenance facility in Cleveland and drove it at least five miles before he was spotted and arrested, authorities said.
The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority is investigating how the teenager 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.
A transit spokeswoman says it would've been complicated to start the bus because it uses a series of buttons, not keys.
She said the teenager was behind the wheel when a transit supervisor later spotted the parked bus, which had a cracked window and a smashed mirror.
