A Middlebury man was arrested early Saturday morning after police found him driving a school bus in Naugatuck.
Kevin Monagan, 18, of 51 Pine Hollow Dr., Middlebury was arrested Saturday at about 2 a.m. and charged with first-degree larceny, first-degree criminal attempt at larceny, third-degree criminal trespass, second-degree criminal trover, second-degree criminal mischief, third-degree criminal trespass, operating a school bus without proper license and other motor vehicle charges.
Police discovered Monagan driving a school bus near North Church Street at Bridge Street with no headlights illuminated. Monagan was stopped, a press release said, and questioned by police. The release said Monagan said he obtained the bus from a NAPA Auto Parts, which is located near the bus lot. After more questioning, Monagan ultimately told police he broke into the school bus and drove off with it after finding keys, the release said.
Police also found out the bus had been vandalized, along with another bus in the lot.
Monagan was held on a $25,000 bond and was expected to appear in court on Monday.
