Fun news today from the Grand Theft Auto LARP community.
Durham Police have taken a man in his 30s into custody for stealing a TTC bus and taking it for a joy ride to Whitby, of all places. To confirm this is real:

Details are scarce, but we do know that the man is not a TTC employee and that the bus is believed to have been stolen from the transit agency’s Birchmount Garage early this morning.
While the official police statement didn’t reveal how officers found the bus, unconfirmed sources overheard Durham Regional Police Chief Paul Martin mumble, “it’s a damn big vehicle 20 miles outside its jurisdiction” in explaining the discovery.
How’s it possible to see a ttc bus in Whitby?

The suspect’s name has not been released, so there’s still a chance it could be Keanu Reeves with a fake I.D.
The bus is reportedly fine and just wants to go home.
