Cops: Boy Steals School Bus, Takes It Home


OWEGO, N.Y. (AP) -- Police say a 15-year-old boy stole a bus from school and then led officers on a chase that ended at his home in a neighboring county.

A school employee called police around to report the theft.

While the initial report was being taken, the bus zipped past a Broome County sheriff's deputy on patrol. The deputy started to pursue the bus but the driver wouldn't pull over.

A state trooper set up a tire deflation device in Tioga County but the bus kept going.

Police say the 10-mile chase finally ended when Michael Beckett pulled into the driveway of his home in the town of Owego. Officers apprehended Beckett after he ran from the school bus.

Authorities say charges are pending. Beckett was released to a parent.
