ATLANTA — Police are investigating the theft of cell phones, cash and other items from members of a high school marching band while they performed at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade in Atlanta.

Authorities say someone broke into the school bus, parked near Centennial Olympic Park downtown, and stole items belonging to members of the Central Carroll High School marching band.

Police said the bus was being watched by an attendant, but was left unattended for about 30 minutes. Police said iPhones, iPads, cellphones and cash were among items stolen.

School officials tells WSB-TV that the band plans to return next year to perform in the parade.

I guess they'll have to pay two bus drivers next year so they can take turns going to the bathroom.

LL, 30 minutes for a bathroom break sounds really excessive to me. Or maybe the driver went to taco bell the night before?

Okay

Maybe it's a union job and the contract gives the driver a 30 minute break.

ENTITLED and/or mandated. Security be damned.
