Nude Man Driving Stolen School Bus Leads Police on Chase
In a bizarre turn of events, a man in Pennsylvania was recently arrested while naked after allegedly stealing a school bus to transport a dead deer for use as fertilizer in his garden, leading police on a wild chase.
The shocking incident unfolded on Tuesday, leading to a wild chase through Carroll Township, and leaving the local community in disbelief.
The suspect, identified as 25-year-old Tony Saunders, reportedly admitted to the police that he intended to use the deceased deer as fertilizer for his garden, resulting in multiple charges against him, including fleeing an officer, receiving stolen property, resisting arrest, and reckless driving.
According to a crime report published on the website of the Carroll Township Police Department (CTPD), officers were informed at 7:10 a.m. local time about a stolen bus that had been spotted in the Dillsburg area. The bus had been reported stolen from Abbottstown, and officers across York and Adams counties were asked to be on the lookout.
CTPD officers located the stolen school bus in a Giant Foods and Rite Aid parking lot, with its lights repeatedly switching on and off. After confirming that it matched the description of the stolen vehicle, they attempted to conduct a traffic stop. However, the bus pulled away and began driving north on Route 15, weaving in and out of traffic lanes.
The chase continued until the bus nearly overturned after driving over a berm and eventually stopping near the junction of the PA Turnpike. The driver of the bus fled on foot through a wooded area, and officers later apprehended a suspect male while searching the nearby railroad tracks. The suspect, identified as Saunders, had stripped off his clothes during the chase and was eventually apprehended naked.
Saunders admitted to driving the stolen bus earlier in the day and claimed that he had placed a deceased deer in the back of the bus with the intention of using it as fertilizer for his garden. He has been charged with fleeing an officer, receiving stolen property, resisting arrest, and reckless driving, and has been taken to York Central Booking.
