August 25th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

A Virginia charter bus driver is facing a charge of grand larceny after she stole the bus and went on a joy ride, police said. WTOP reports Prince William County police spokesman Nathan Probus said before 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, 24-year-old Mellat Kassa, an Omni Charter bus driver, asked all the passengers to get off her bus and she took off. She went off her normal route and did not pick up any other passengers.


GPS from the bus company showed she drove around the Capital Beltway and got onto northbound Interstate 95, Probus said.


Kassa was hired by contractor First Transit to drive the Omni charter bus on a route that goes to Manassas, said Christine Rodrigo with the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission, which operates the Omni Bus line.
