TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- The search is on for two school buses stolen from a Tampa elementary school.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's detectives on Tuesday said one bus is believed to be in Pasco County and the other may be in Marion County. The buses were reported stolen from the school on Sunday.
They say the buses may still be on the road and have issued a statewide alert. They're asking the public to report any buses parked or abandoned in any unusual locations or being used in a suspicious manner.
As a precaution, officials notified the Department of Homeland Security.
Sheriff's officials say they don't believe the thefts are related to the upcoming Republican National Convention in Tampa. But they say they've been in contact with convention security to keep them informed.
