A 13- and 14-year-old have been arrested after police said they took the keys for a school bus and went on a joy ride. 

Police in Bucyrus, Ohio, said it happened Friday. The teens, whose names have not been released because of their age, took the bus and smashed vehicles at a local salvage yard, police told WSYX

They did between $12,000 and $15,000 in damage before an eyewitness saw what was happening, police said.

“I can’t say I’ve seen damage caused like this in a long, long time,” Bucyrus Police Chief David Keopke told WSYX. “This was malicious. It was intentional.”
