Unmarked school bus seen at Ypsilanti Township for tried to pick up kids

YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, MICHIGAN – A metro Detroit school region has issued a notice after an unmarked school bus attempted to get kids on Thursday morning.

As per Van Buren Public Schools, the unmarked transport was seen halting in the West Willow neighborhood in Ypsilanti Township attempting to get students.

The locale is advising guardians to not approach any transport that does not have clear markings of Van Buren Public Schools.

They say police have been reached and the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office is researching.

Police are hunting down a suspicious, unmarked school transport that endeavored to get youngsters in Ypsilanti Township on Thursday, Oct. 19.

Van Buren Public Schools were advised of the episode not long after 7 a.m. Thursday, when a parent revealed that the unmarked school transport pulled up to a transport stop close Tyler Road and Buick Avenue and asserted to be a driver for the region, said Peter Kudlak, area director. The area is in Ypsilanti Township’s West Willow neighborhood.

The area name on the school transport had been splash painted over, as per a Nixle alarm issued by the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office.

The parent was concerned and did not permit the youngsters onto the transport, Kudlak said. The youngsters were either center school or secondary school understudies.

The driver dashed off and the school area then alarmed guardians with telephone messages, posted on their site, reached police and reached other school locale to caution them, authorities said.

In the event that they miss their genuine transport and miss a day of school, he said it’s justified, despite all the trouble – it’s more vital that kids are protected.

“It’s exceptionally concerning understanding this was accounted for and that some person would do this,” he said.

Those with data on the occurrence are made a request to contact the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office at 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
