GARLAND COUNTY, AR - One school district in the middle of a criminal investigation just days before school starts. Eight buses in the Cutter Morning Star School District vandalized over the weekend but investigators have the suspected vandals caught on tape.
The video isn't very clear, but it does show three people walking around the Cutter Morning Star schools bus barn early Saturday morning.
Football coaches starting practice the next day found windshields shattered, back windows busted out, 80% of the fleet unusable just days before school starts.
Superintendent Nancy Anderson says the vandals caused nearly 5-thousand dollars worth of damage.
"It’s just unbelievable to me that someone would want to destroy something that the taxpayers paid for," Anderson says. "I'm very disappointed in their actions and their behavior, we are investigating and it will be dealt with."
And with camera's rolling investigators and the district think whoever is responsible for this vandalism either didn't know the cameras were on or they didn't care.
“No regard for public property, no respect for themselves obviously because there are some serious consequences that go along with this," Anderson says.
The Garland County Sheriff's Department is working to identify all three in the video, each could face felony charges.
Meanwhile, Anderson says it's a setback but the buses will be rolling again.
"We're going to run buses Monday the 20th, first thing in the morning so we should be ready for school," Anderson says.
