Man Steals School Bus

On June 25th, 2024 at approximately 8:15 AM Utica Police units were dispatched to the area of Eagle St and Park Ave to assist Durham Bus employees with the theft of a school bus.

It was reported that employees noticed one of the busses missing, and upon tracking on GPS they located it near the above intersection. As they were getting ready to return to the bus to their facility they were approached by a male who was holding the key and a tablet that accompanied the bus. The male was adamant that the bus and tablet were his and that no one was taking in from him.

Based on the behaviors of this party, employees contacted the Police Department, and upon their arrival, the male was detained for the investigation. When employees were able to view the bus camera footage they learned that the male in question did in fact steal the bus around 1:00 AM and ultimately drove it to the location where they encountered it.

At the conclusion of the investigation, Daniel Finley age 29, no known address, was charged with:

Grand Larceny in the fourth degree

Criminal Possession of Stolen Property
