SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. — A man dressed in black clothes stole a Summit County bus parked near Keystone Ski Resort with passengers on board, deputies said Friday.
The bus was sitting at the River Run stop in Keystone when a man dressed in black and wearing a black baklava got in the driver’s seat and drove off, said Tracy LeClair of the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
“Passengers on the bus called 911 to report that the bus was being driven erratically up Montezuma Road,” LeClair said in a news release.
Deputies found the bus, which had slid off the road and gotten stuck. They found a man matching the thief’s description walking on Montezuma Road about a half-mile away and arrested him.
Passengers helped deputy’s identity the man and the thief, LeClair said.
Joshua Taylor Mock, 23, was booked into the Summit County jail on multiple charges including four counts of second-degree kidnapping, first-degree aggravated motor vehicle theft and reckless endangerment.
No bond has been set for Mock. His first court appearance is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
