A person stole an American Airways bus from JFK Airport early Wednesday and took it on a joyride by way of three boroughs earlier than he was busted, authorities mentioned.
Burshawn Quildon, 43, hopped inside the worker bus, which was left unattended and idling in Lot 12 of the airport, simply earlier than 2 a.m., and drove off, cops mentioned.
Quildon was whizzing down the Grand Central Parkway when an eagle-eyed airline worker — driving in his non-public automotive — noticed the stolen bus and known as 911, cops mentioned.
It’s unclear if Quildon knew he had been noticed — however he continued driving over the RFK Bridge into Manhattan and weaved his manner alongside the FDR Drive earlier than crossing over the Brooklyn Bridge, authorities mentioned.
Police didn’t chase Quildon throughout his joyride, however they had been in place to soundly pull him over simply over the bridge, at Cadman Plaza West, cops mentioned.
No accidents had been reported.
The whole pre-dawn tour spanned about 17 miles.
Quildon, of Brooklyn, was arrested and charged with grand larceny and felony possession of stolen property, cops mentioned.
He’s “recognized to the division” and has largely a home violence background, police mentioned.
He has 10 open arrests and 7 others which were sealed, police sources mentioned.
He was final arrested in 2015 for a domestic-related theft, cops mentioned.
