Metro East thieves target school buses

COLLINSVILLE, Il (KMOV.com) -- Collinsville police estimate the burglary at the First Student school bus company will cost about $100,000. Thieves stole 35 batteries from school buses.

“The replacement cost is approximately $2,800, and that’s just for the battery itself," said Lieutenant Eric Zaber. "Obviously it will take time to repair the cables and install the battery, but the batteries themselves cost $2,800 a piece.”
