EAST ALTON POLICE INVESTIGATING UNMARKED SCHOOL BUS

The East Alton Police Department is warning parents to be aware of their surroundings and to make sure their children are boarding the correct school bus after a weird incident happened Thursday morning.

An unmarked school bus pulled to a corner near the the city’s limit, the driver parked then opened the door and sat. The bus had nothing on it that would help one determine if it was a certain school district’s bus.

Police confirmed with the school districts that the bus wasn’t one of theirs. Now investigators are searching for the bus driver. There were no children aboard which made the incident more scary for residents.

Anyone with information on the incident should call the East Alton Police Department at 618-259-6212.
