Cops: Tires on up to 30 NY school buses deflated


YOUNGSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - State police are seeking the public's help in finding the person or persons who deflated the tires on 20 to 30 school buses parked at an upstate New York garage.

Troopers say they were called earlier this month to the First Student bus garage in Youngsville in Sullivan County, 80 miles southwest of Albany, for a criminal tampering complaint.

First Student contracts with Sullivan West Central School District to provide bus transportation. Troopers say between June 6 and 7, the tires on 20 to 30 school buses were deflated, temporarily taking them out of service.

Police say they're reviewing video footage from the garage's security cameras. Anyone having any information about the incident is asked to call New York State Police in Liberty at 845-292-6600.
