Police in Lake City have arrested a man they said was caught on surveillance video stealing items from inside a bus returning from the Grad Bash at Universal Resort Orlando.

Chad Washington, 30, is charged in the thefts.

A Trailways bus was full of high school seniors and their chaperones returning home from Orlando last month.

Police said the video showed Washington enter the opened, empty and running bus and stole several items from the front two seats and left. The stolen items included two iPads and a purse.
