Police Use D-N-A Tests In School Bus Vandalism Case


CANTON, Ohio (AP) - D-N-A evidence found in school buses that were vandalized has resulted in the arrest of three teenage boys.

The boys, two age 15 and one 16, are accused of destroying more than 100 windows in seven Jackson Local School District buses on New Years Eve near Canton.

The boys' parents consented to police using D-N-A samples from their children as part of the investigation. Jackson Township Police Chief Harley Neftzer said two of the three are students in the Jackson school system and the third is a Canton student. All three were arrested yesterday.

The Stark County Crime Lab helped police by testing a blood sample and beer cans left at the scene.
