MILFORD: An expensive piece of s school bus was reported stolen last week from Milford.

East Hants S/Sgt. Cory Bushell said officers received a report of theft in Milford on Feb. 28.  The caller reported the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) system was stolen from the underside of a school bus.

“The DEF is part of the exhaust system and helps to reduce harmful emissions, said S/Sgt. Bushell.

He said the bus was parked in the bus compound at HERH and the DEF was removed some time over the previous weekend.

“The units are very expensive to replace, and the theft is a huge hit financially,” said S/Sgt. Bushell.

Police are still investigating and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
