A Deer Park man was arrested Monday, charged with stealing a minibus from a storage yard, then driving it from Bohemia to Babylon before being caught, Suffolk County police said.

Police said Jeffrey Pellegrino, 46, was arrested after First Precinct officers used a GPS tracker to locate the bus on Ralph Avenue and Park Avenue in Babylon at about 2:30 p.m. Police said the 2010 Ford minibus, owned by Acme Bus Corp., had been stolen in Bohemia.

Pellegrino, who police said has no ties to the bus company, was charged with third-degree grand larceny and issued eight traffic tickets.

The defendant was arraigned Tuesday, with bail set at $15,000 cash or $30,000 bond, authorities said.

Pellegrino was represented by the Legal Aid Society, which typically does not comment on cases.
