ROSS COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH)– A bus driver who noticed something suspicious during his afternoon route helped deputies capture two suspected thieves.
Chillicothe City Schools driver Shawn Ost was getting ready to drop off children at an address in the 1300 block of England Hollow Road and noticed a strange van in the driveway with two strange men, according to the sheriff’s office.
