Bus taken from Madison schools

Richmond police found a school bus Sunday that apparently had been taken from the Madison County Public Schools.

Police went to the 2000 block of Willow Drive to investigate a report of a bus parked in a vacant lot and that appeared to have been wrecked.

The officers found a 1995 International school bus with a large scrape down the right side and a large hole in a storage compartment, police said.

An official from the school district was called to the scene but he did not know where or when the bus had been taken.

The estimated damage to the bus was $5,000, Richmond police said.
