PHOENIX, Ore. – Some local school buses were stripped of their catalytic converters over the weekend.
The Phoenix-Talent School District said each bus has two to three converters.
It tells us in all it lost seven converters on five buses.
The district contracts out its buses from First Student.
The organization said it took immediate action to minimize its impact to service, bringing in buses from other locations.
They have managed to replace the buses temporarily with some from Grants Pass, Central point and Roseburg School Districts until the original ones are repaired.
