PARKER, Fla. -

Officials say the 12-year-old boy arrested after stealing a school bus earlier this summer is accused of stealing another bus.

The boy was arrested Wednesday after he was stopped for erratic driving in the Florida Panhandle.

The News-Herald of Panama City reports the boy found a key left hidden in a school bus at Parker Elementary School after a bus driver finished his route and drove to Franklin County, west of Panama City.

Bay District Schools safety and security officer Mike Jones says the boy had just been released from the Department of Juvenile Justice a day earlier.

He's charged with trespassing on school property, grant theft auto and burglary.

He is accused of stealing a bus in June and taking it on a joyride in Panama City Beach.
