Stolen school bus found abandoned

SAN DIEGO - A school bus stolen from the grounds of a Tierrasanta preschool several days ago was found abandoned Thursday morning in the Morena district.

A person walked into the San Diego Police Department's Western Division station on Gaines Street about 10:45 a.m. and reported spotting the unoccupied yellow-and-black Adventure Days Preschool transport vehicle parked a short distance away, at Benicia and Riley streets, SDPD Sgt. Ed Zwibel said.

The bus had disappeared from the Tierrasanta Boulevard preschool campus late Monday night or early Tuesday morning, according to a GoFundMe.com page set up to raise money for a replacement.

The vehicle apparently was undamaged, according to Zwibel. There were no immediate arrests in the case, the sergeant said.
