ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A unique “kool” bus is no longer in the wrong hands.
Mahan Kalpa Khalsa from Espanola had his 1949 school bus parked on Central and Third Street Monday afternoon. When he went back to it at about 1 p.m., it was gone. So, he called the police and made a report.
Khalsa says he bought the bus six years ago and had just finished restoring it. It’s something special his family enjoys.
“I drive my kids to school in it, my grandkids, and we go on excursions and so it’s a fascinating piece of my family’s good times,” Khalsa said.
Overnight, Khalsa called us to let KRQE News 13 know that police located it in a northwest Albuquerque neighborhood abandoned.
He says it’s not clear if anyone is facing charges, but he is glad to have it back.
