The St. Paul teen was taken into custody and booked into juvenile detention, with felony auto theft charges expected by Tuesday.

The school bus was empty at the time of the theft.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The bus driver had stopped for a coffee at the Holiday gas station on Rice Street and Wheelock Parkway at about 7:50 a.m.

The boy told police he found the "abandoned" bus and thought he would return it to the Centerline Bus Company lot on Rice Street.

The driver immediately called her supervisor and GPS tracked the bus to the Rice Street lot.

CAUGHT ON TAPE

The boy said he became scared when he heard police chatter over the bus radio, so he drove down Rice Street, turned onto County Road B2, then into the Shell gas station on Dale Street, where he sideswiped a barrier in front of pump No. 3.

    Astorino blasts Cuomo over Moreland Commission

    In 2013, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo created a state panel to investigate public corruption, called the Moreland Commission. But the governor is accused of interfering with investigations and compromising the commission's work. Republican Astorino, who is running against Cuomo, claimed Cuomo didn't hand over evidence to State Police. Astorino wants a special prosecutor to find out if any state and federal laws were broken.

    Archeologists say they've solved a mystery that started with the rebuilding at ground zero. During the excavation at the World Trade Center Site, workers uncovered part of an old ship. No one knew where it came from. Now after years of study, researchers believe the sloop dates back to 1773, built from wood harvested from Pennsylvania, the same kind used to build Independence Hall.
