Tire Technician told to hit the road
The wheels came off the wagon a little too often, so a tire technician has been told to hit the road.
Investigators found that 41-year-old Bobby Land, who worked with Marion County school buses, was removing slightly-used tires and selling them.
They say he cashed-in on more than 230 tires, valued at $55,000.
Wednesday, the school board fired him.
Land was charged with dealing in stolen property last month. The tire shop that bought some of the tires has since closed.
