Three buses disappear from Trussville...but nobody seen them being moved?

Has anyone ever seen a magician make an elephant disappear?  Neither have I, then how in the hell did so-called "thieves" get away with 3 large, yellow, school buses over the weekend in Trussville?

According to the local news sources including Birmingham FOX affiliate, WBRC, are reporting that 3 school buses were stolen from suburban Birmingham municipality, Trussville.  The Trussville Police reports that 1 bus was stolen from a locked, fenced area at Hewitt-Trussville High School whereas the other 2 were stolen from an open parking area at Hewitt-Trussville Middle School.  The police believes the buses were taken between 1 and 2 a.m. Saturday.

The Trussville School District has 47 buses.  The District spokeswoman Kelly Bowles said damage to the fence at the high school was discovered Sunday, but the buses weren't discovered missing this morning.  HUH?  

The one stolen from the high school has a 09-05 license plate, number 44485 MU. Of the two buses from the middle school, one had a 01-10 license number, 44501 MU, and the other had a 05-08 license number, 44515 MU. The buses were standard yellow buses varying in years from 2005 to 2009.

Somebody is very negligent when it comes to this, and needs to lose their job(s).  How in the hell does one not realize that if fence is broken that something wasn't tampered with or stolen on Sunday? This is Trussville, the same school district is home to nepotism out the ying-yang with the "national accredited" superintendent being paid $130K annually while laying off non-tenure teachers just earlier this year.  Yet the city reported a massive shortfall in municipal coffers because its tax base being totally retail-oriented.  SMH.  I think I'll stick to Birmingham where at least some logic would go a little bit further with the regular day-to-day operation employees...

UPDATE: The buses were found all severely damaged beyond repair via fire on Tuesday.  Today, there was an arrest made, and presumably more to come...
