SUTTON, W.Va. (AP) - Police say vandals caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to Braxton County's school bus fleet.
Thirty of the county's 32 buses at a depot in Sutton were vandalized. The vandals broke windows and glass doors and discharged fire extinguishers inside the buses.
West Virginia State Police Sgt. Andrew Shingler tells the Charleston Daily Mail that two teenagers from the Little Birch area told police that they were involved. He says charges are pending.
Shingler says there's a possibility others were involved and the investigation is continuing.
Businesses in the area have contacted state police and offered security footage to aid the investigation.
Brenda Wells with Braxton County Schools says the buses were insured.
