Man takes bus on joyride: Stolen Greyhound Bus, Police in Brooklyn have arrested a man who allegedly stole a Greyhound bus out of the Port Authority Bus Terminal, and the driver is the notorious train and bus thief who’s been arrested 29 times in the past, officials said.

Police took Darius McCollum, 50, into custody in downtown Brooklyn after receiving a be-on-the-lookout notice from authorities.

The bus was initially said to be stolen from New Jersey but officials later said it was taken from the Port Authority depot on Manhattan’s West Side, after it had arrived from Philadelphia at 11 a.m. It was scheduled to head on to Richmond, Virginia at about 2:15 p.m., and a supervisor noticed it missing at about 1:30 p.m., police said.

The supervisor alerted Greyhound headquarters in Texas, and they were able to track the bus in Brooklyn using GPS. Police were notified, and when they pulled over the bus on 3rd Avenue and Union Street, McCollum allegedly showed the officers a fake law enforcement shield and badge.
