BUCYRUS, OH - The Bucyrus Police Department is currently investigating a case where two juveniles caused extensive damage to a local salvage yard.

On February 15th, 2019 the Bucyrus Police Department received a call about two juveniles driving a school bus at Central Ohio Recycling & Salvage. Upon arrival, officers located the two juveniles on the scene. 

After an investigation, the two juveniles admitted to trespassing on the property. The 13-year-old and 14-year-old stated they found a hammer, which they then used to break the windows on the school bus, according to a police report.

The two found keys to the school bus and attempted to drive the bus, striking multiple vehicles in the process. A semi truck was found to be 10-12 feet from where it was originally parked due to being hit by the school bus multiple times. The cab was burnt up and had been crushed in. 

An orange bucket truck was found with its front windshield shattered, along with its passenger side door bent. A white Chevy pickup truck had its front windshield kicked out. 

Chains hooked up to the semi were found to have been hooked up to the bus. The owner of the property stated that it looked like the juveniles tried to pull the semi back out after ramming it repeatedly. 

According to the police report, the owner of the property estimated between $12,000 to $15,000 worth of damage was caused by the juveniles.

Damage caused by the juveniles was photographed. The two were arrested and are currently being held in Seneca County for a detention hearing in Crawford County. 

The case remains under investigation.
