Florida burglary suspect catches ride on school bus
Bradenton, Fla. — Deputies in Florida arrested a 27-year-old burglary suspect after they say he caught a ride on a school bus.
The Bradenton Herald-Tribune reports that when Erik Hall boarded a school bus without a shirt on Tuesday morning, the driver thought he was a student.
Authorities say the driver told Hall to put on a shirt. Hall didn’t comply and sat down. Hall later told the driver he wasn’t a student and that he’d just needed a ride.
The driver pulled into a school, waved down an administrator and school resource officers questioned Hall. He was released, but deputies learned later he was a suspect in a burglary that morning.
Deputies tracked him down, and he’s now charged with trespassing on school property.
An attorney for him isn’t listed on jail records.
