Livingston Parish deputies have arrested Zachary Anderson, the man they said stole a school bus Tuesday night.
Sheriff Jason Ard said in a news release that Anderson, 30, of Denham Springs, was caught on surveillance footage driving inside the bus. Ard said two school buses were parked along Magnolia Beach Road about 10 p.m. when someone got inside and started driving one.
The suspect parked the bus back at its original location and began driving the second bus. The second bus was recovered Wednesday morning along Lockhart Road near Magnolia Estates, according to Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office.
Investigators say arson was the cause of a fire at an apartment Tuesday night at 11445 Bard Ave., according to the Baton Rouge Fire Department.
The investigation is continuing, but authorities believe Anderson is involved with the theft. Anyone with information should contact LPSO at (225) 686-2241 or Greater Baton Rouge Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP.
