GAINESVILLE, Tex. -- Gainesville ISD officials are left literally picking up the pieces after someone broke several school bus windows. Now they want to let everyone know that while it will not affect the school transportation next month, it is an extra expense in an already tight budget.

Officials estimate the damage to be around $900 dollars, and they want the person responsible for the crime to face the consequences for the crime.

The first vandalism happened on Tuesday night. Witnesses saw a teenager throwing rocks over the fence at that bus yard in the 400 block of Harvey.

Then on Wednesday night, they say the same teen return to the scene, throwing more rocks. This time police say neighbors were able point him out to officers.

Because he is a juvenile, the suspect's name is not being released, but Gainesville superintendent Bill Grevitt says the teen should be punished for the crime.

"You have rules, and then there is always someone that has to interrupt that, and we're certainly trying to go the other direction," Grevitt said.

Authorities say no charges have been filed, but it is also not the first time this young man has been in trouble with the law.
