Two Liberty County teens were arrested Sunday after allegedly stealing a school bus and taking it on a joyride.
The girls, ages 13 and 15, were taken into custody and charged with grand theft of a vehicle and trespassing on school grounds.
According to the Liberty County Sheriff's Office, a Hosford woman called around 11 p.m. to report the girls had pulled up in her yard to speak with her son and told him they had taken a school bus. The girls drove off, honking as they left and continuing on their joyride. Several deputies responded, searching from Hosford to Orange. Sgt. Jamie Shiver located the girls just after 11:30 p.m. at Hwy. 65 and Old Blue Creek Road and initiated a traffic stop. The girls smelled of alcohol and admitted they had been drinking after stealing liquor from the father of one of the girls.
The bus had been stolen from Hosford School. The girls were turned over to their parents with a notice to appear in court.
