Five Crosby High School students could soon be charged with vandalizing dozens of school buses.

At least 58 of Crosby ISD's 70 school buses had the tire stems tampered with over the weekend, flattening the tires. As a result, about half of the district's student body was left without bus service yesterday morning.

According to officials, all five persons of interest are 17 and 18 years old and are seniors from Crosby High School. The district is working with the DA's office and expect charges to be filed in the next 24 to 48 hours.

"Luckily for us, the stems were cut, which is a little easier process to repair," said Crosby ISD Superintendent Keith Miller said. "It's not that funny. It's going to cost us some money and some instructional time for our kids."

Officials are reviewing surveillance video as the investigation continues.
