TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Eleven vandalized school buses have been repaired and should be ready to transport students to school Tuesday morning.

Someone smashed the windshields and windows on the buses parked in the east side Tucson Unified School District bus yard at Broadway and Harrison Roads.

Four of the buses are practically new.

They have less than 6,000 miles on them. 

The crime happened sometime over the weekend.

It meant some Collier Elementary School and Sabino High School students were late getting to school on Monday.

The vandals lobbed large rocks over the 10-foot high fence and hit the buses parked along the fence.

Some of the rocks were as large as soccer balls.

The buses also have body damage from the rocks.

TUSD, which is self-insured, did not have a damage estimate yet.

Police ask anyone with information on this crime call 911 or 88-CRIME.

Police don't know if it's related, but on Saturday afternoon the alarm went off at Gridley Middle School which is right next door to the bus yard.

Police found a broken window and an open teacher's desk drawer.

No word on whether anything was stolen.

Police say they took fingerprints.
