Two ar­rested for stolen school bus


Two peo­ple were ar­rested and booked into jail on re­ceiv­ing stolen prop­erty charges fol­low­ing a pur­suit in­volv­ing a stolen Twin Val­ley South school bus early Wed­nes­day morn­ing, po­lice said.

Dal­ton Knis­ley, 20, and Calvin Keener, 20, both of Ea­ton, were booked into the Mont­gomery County Jail on charges, and au­thor­i­ties said ad­di­tional charges might come out of Pre­ble County, where the bus was stolen.

A Brookville of­fi­cer ini­tially spot­ted the bus on Arlington Road, thought it was odd for the bus to be out around 3 a.m., and fol­lowed the ve­hi­cle, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said. Af­ter at­tempt­ing to stop the ve­hi­cle for a traf­fic vi­o­la­tion, the sus­pects took off, po­lice said.

Brookville po­lice said Knis­ley and Keener told them they had been sleep­ing in the school bus when they de­cided to drive off with it from the Twin Val­ley South park­ing lot.

“They in­di­cated that they were sleep­ing in the bus early this morn­ing and one of the sus­pects wanted to go to Wal­mart,” said Maj. Tom Si­mon with Brookville po­lice. “We don’t know how they ob­tained the keys, we just know they were in the bus when we found it.”
