Perez reportedly entered multiple buses during her time on the property and removed one Zonar screen, two Lytex drive cameras, one Motorola CB radio, one Zonar hand controller and three tire bats.

The Wichita Falls Police Department says all of the property taken was recovered.

Officers reportedly arrived on scene around 9 a.m. while the fire department was putting out the truck fire and Perez was still on the property.
