NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro police are investigating after someone stole a school bus from Maplewood High School on Tuesday morning in Madison.

The thief ran through two fences to get onto the football field and did doughnuts in the grass.

The crime was reported around midnight, and officers discovered the vandalized bus on the football field. It was later towed away.

Maplewood High School stores several school buses in a parking lot, and the vandalized bus was being stored at its campus.

Metro Nashville Public Schools Spokesman Joe Bass said the door was pried open and cameras inside the bus were stolen. The vandal or vandals also tried to break into three other school buses, causing minor damage to those. It's unclear how the vandal or vandals was able to drive the bus, as the keys are kept in a keypad-enabled lock box on the bus.

Administrators said they will still be able to access the video captured from the stolen cameras, and security is downloading footage for review.

Crews are repairing the fences, sprinkler system and field, and they expect it to be ready for Thursday's middle school and Friday's high school games.

The number of vandals is unknown at this time.
