BROOKLYN, N.Y. — A man with a record of more than two dozen arrests related to the transit system was arrested again Wednesday — this time on allegations that he stole a Greyhound bus, CBS2 reported.

Police sources said Darius McCollum, 50, has already planned his next heist when he was arrested Wednesday. McCollum told detectives he planned to steal an airplane next, according to the report.

The Greyhound bus McCollum allegedly stole had arrived from Philadelphia at the Port Authority Bus Terminal at 11 a.m. Wednesday, police told CBS2. At 1:30 p.m., Greyhound realized the bus was missing, police said. Ten minutes later, they called their transportation command headquarters Texas, which was able to detect the bus through an onboard GPS, police said. For the full story, click here.
