    Tulsa police recovered a school bus Monday that had been stolen from an east Tulsa QuikTrip.

    Police told FOX23 the Tulsa Public Schools bus driver stopped at the QuikTrip near Admiral and Memorial and went inside the store. No children were on the bus but the driver left it running when he went inside.

    Tulsa police say that is when a man -- Oscar Aguilar -- took the bus.

    Officers tried using TPS's GPS tracker to find the bus but they say it was not working and leading them to several other locations.

    Officers began to pull over buses at random until one driver told police he could hear the driver of the stolen bus on his radio. Police say they used the radio to talk to Aguilar and find out where he was.

    Police found the stolen bus at Sutherlands near 21st Street and I-44 around 8 a.m. Officers arrested Aguilar under complaints of auto theft and driving without a license.

    Tulsa Public Schools says no damage was done to the bus.
