On Oct. 14, at about 3 a.m., a school bus was stolen from a lot in Capreol. It was driven to the Hanmer area and then set on fire. Then, on Oct. 21, at about 4:30 a.m., another school bus was stolen from the same lot — it was also driven to the Hanmer area where it was involved in a collision with two vehicles and it also struck a building.
It was left at the collision site and the suspects ran off.
