MSP Cruiser lightsOCEANA COUNTY, Mich. — Two teenagers have been arrested, and they are accused of stealing a vehicle that belongs to the Walkerville Public School Bus Facility.

Shortly after 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 22, Michigan State Police Troopers responded to the bus facility to investigate a damaged fence. They then realized that a full-sized van was missing, after apparently crashing through the fence.

Troopers tracked the van, and found it stuck on seasonal roads. They later found the two suspects, 16 and 18-years-old, hiding in a Christmas tree plantation. The 18-year-old will face felony charges, and the juvenile will be petitioned to probate court on the same charges.
