Minnesota boy pleads guilty to school bus theft

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A 14-year-old St. Paul boy has pleaded guilty to stealing an idling school bus and crashing it at a gas station.
    
The boy pleaded guilty Thursday in juvenile court to motor vehicle theft and criminal damage to property.
    
The Ramsey County Attorney's Office says the boy agreed to pay restitution.
    
The driver had left the empty bus running February 10 while she stopped at a St. Paul gas station for coffee. Police say the boy jumped aboard and took the bus on a two-mile ride before crashing it at another gas station in Roseville.
    
The boy told police he decided the bus was abandoned and needed to be returned.
    
No one was hurt, but the bus and the gas station pumps were damaged.
