INDIANAPOLIS - Officials were investigating an unidentified substance that was found on an Indianapolis Public School bus Monday afternoon.
The bus pulled into the parking lot at the Indianapolis Fire Department station in the 2400 block of Tibbs Avenue, where the students were taken off the bus.
The approximately 50 students on the bus were taken to another location away from the bus.
Authorities later said that somebody apparently threw a balloon containing the white substance onto the bus through an open window.
Officials with the Indianapolis Fire Department said the substance was testing high in vitamin levels and they said it could possibly be baby cereal, but more tests were being conducted to be sure.
IFD Captain Rita Burris said the substance did not appear to be anything life-threatening.
No students were injured or were transported for any medical issues.
Officials said concerned parents of students that were on the bus should call the school in the morning for updated information.
Authorities have started an investigation into who was responsible for throwing the balloon onto the bus and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS.
