Collinsville, IL (KSDK) - Two men have been charged with stealing 35 school bus batteries from a First Student bus lot in the 1200 block of Lebanon Road.

The Madison County State's Attorney charged 25 year old Danny Kelly and 44 year old Michael Kniser with felony burglary.

Police say the batteries can sell for about fifteen dollars a piece, but it cost First Student nearly $200 each to replace them.

Neither man has posted bond, and both remain in jail.

Police are still in the process of identifying a third suspect.
