    Joyrider Steals NYC Bus, Goes Undetected for Hours
    News 4 New York (File)
    New select bus service in Queens could speed up commute for New Yorkers.

    Authorities say a joyrider sneaked off with an empty New York City bus and took it on an hours-long adventure from the Bronx to Queens and back.

    Police said Wednesday they're searching for a suspect in Sunday's brazen heist, which was starting to gain attention after the Christmas holiday.

    Police said the bus was stolen around 7:40 p.m. Sunday near the Crossings Mall in the Bronx.

    GPS data shows it went to Queens before it was found a few blocks away around 4 a.m. Monday, more than eight hours later.

    Police say the MTA didn't report the bus stolen until after it was already found.

    The MTA declined to comment, citing the ongoing police investigation.
