SAN DIEGO – A stolen bus that serves 100 preschool students in Tierrasanta was found Thursday.
A 1996 International Blue Bird bus was reported missing from the Adventure Days Preschool located at 10881 Tierrasanta Boulevard Tuesday. Jill Giles, assistant director of the school, told FOX 5 it went missing between Monday night and early Tuesday morning.
SkyFOX flew over the bus Thursday morning while officers surrounded it. It appeared to be abandoned at Benicia and Riley streets in a neighborhood near Linda Vista.
The bus has a license plate 5HET170 and has been driven over 236,000 miles.
“Our children’s beloved school bus was stolen yesterday from our preschool/church property,” Giles said. “They stole from children and a church right before Christmas!”
