In an effort to confound authorities hot on his trail, an Alabama man stole the slowest getaway vehicle possible, a school bus, and ran it into a ditch. A trio of flukes the thief didn’t take into account brought authorities to his door: one, the man didn’t know a witness saw him fleeing after ditching the bus; two, authorities ascertained that the suspect lived in the immediate vicinity of the abandoned vehicle; and three, police were able to identify the thief as he was captured on surveillance cameras installed on the school bus. The suspect’s ultimate ruse proved a failure, and he was arrested and booked for theft of property first degree. He remains in jail on a $15,000 bond.
