    2 unidentified white males

    Vehicle Description:
    2014-2018, light colored GMC Sierra single cab pick-up truck, splash design on doors


    On 8/4/18 at 9:16 p.m., two white males drove onto the Creative Development daycare parking lot in a pick-up truck. They pulled up along the driver's side of a daycare bus, exited the vehicle and walked towards the rear driver's side of the bus. The men proceeded to damage the bus's fuel system and empty the tank in order to steal the fuel. The suspects fled the scene in the pick-up truck.

    The splash design on the doors of the pick-up truck is a distinguishing factor.
