DeKalb school bus drivers’ cars broken into during their afternoon routes

The thieves targeted cars belonging to school bus drivers.

More than a dozen cars belonging to DeKalb County school bus drivers were broken into while the employees were out on their afternoon routes Monday.

Thieves broke into about 16 cars at Buck Godfrey Stadium in Decatur, according to Channel 2 Action News.

One of the vehicles belonged to Charles Lowe. He and other bus drivers park their personal vehicles at the stadium in the 2800 block of Clifton Springs Road.

"How were they able to do 16 cars in that amount of time and nobody see 'em?" Lowe told the news station.

In a statement, the DeKalb County School District said police are investigating the break-ins.

“DCSD Police are working with the Operations Department and the IT Department on security enhancements. A plan of action is being developed regarding these enhancements,” the statement said.

Lowe called for the school district to add more security in the lot.

“This is the second time it happened, so I think they need to get security in here,” Lowe told Channel 2. He said thieves targeted the same lot more than a year ago.

Nothing was stolen from his car, but the back window was shattered.
