A high school school student is in jail after deputies say he stole a big bright and yellow school bus.
Jacobia Reid III, a student at Hertford County High School, has been charged with larceny of a motor vehicle.
The school system says it happened around 1:30 p.m. when the county's transportation mechanic noticed one of the buses was leaving campus. He followed the bus, and deputies joined in.
Sheriff Juan Vaughan says the bus was stopped on Highway 11 toward Murfreesboro, that's where the 17 year old lives.
The sheriff says Reid is jailed on a $10,000 secured bond.
