WICHITA FALLS (AP) — Vandals using rocks, bricks and a golf club have damaged six North Texas school buses but repairs should be done in time for next week’s start of classes.
Wichita Falls police Sgt. John Spragins said Monday that suspects have been identified but not yet arrested.
A spokeswoman for the Wichita Falls Independent School District says the buses were in a yard surrounded by fencing and barbed wire. Renae Murphy says security cameras will be installed at the site where the buses were found vandalized last Thursday. A golf club was recovered at the scene.
Murphy says the buses should be fixed before classes start Aug. 25.
Durham School Services, which manages the more than 90-bus fleet, estimates damages of up to $10,000 from broken windows and mirrors.
