School bus driver reports his marijuana stolen

May 8, 2003

(Dublin-AP) -- A school bus driver in middle Georgia who reported an apparent burglary at his home also told police someone took his marijuana.

Twenty-nine-year-old John Randolph called Dublin police Monday. He told officers a thief took four "dime bags" of marijuana, along with a .22-caliber pistol, a gold necklace and $30 in change.

Officer Michael Milton reported that he asked Randolph about the marijuana again to make sure he heard him correctly. The bus driver repeated what he said and then showed Milton a small box on a bedroom dresser where he said he kept the marijuana.

The police report says Randolph told the officer he was  "saving the marijuana to smoke when school was out." Dublin police say Randolph was not charged with a crime.

Dublin schools operations director Sam Barrs -- who oversees the bus system -- said yesterday he is investigating the incident.

Randolph is not employed by the school system. He works for McLendon and Sons Bus Service, which also is checking into the incident.
