Stolen school bus stop benches replaced


YUMA, AZ - The man who built three bus stop benches for school kids to sit on while they wait is back in action.

The red, white and blue benches were stolen last week.    But Monday morning students have a new place to sit while they wait for their ride.

Patrick Gonzales made the three benches that were stolen. This weekend he was busy at work again.

"I decided to make a single one for now. And I checked this morning and that's enough for the amount of kids that are here right now at the bus stop. So, we'll go with that and see what happens."

Gonzales says he'll keep an eye on this bench. If someone takes it, he says the next one will have longer legs and be anchored into the earth with concrete.
