Albany--Police are on the lookout for some school bus vandals.

At least three teenagers used their Sunday afternoon to damage more than twenty Dougherty County school buses--all at the expense of taxpayers.

At the Dougherty County School bus yard, doors were pulled away, and bumpers were ripped off of buses.

One bus was even rammed into the side of the repair garage causing lots of damage there.

It was about 1:30 PM Sunday when a witness was passing by and saw several buses being driven erratically around the yard.

The witness then called and alerted police. 

So how were the vandals able to drive the buses? Keys were left in some of the ignitions.

Police are looking for three teens, two males and a female, in connection with the vandalism.
