JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The company that runs the football stadium for the city is looking at other transportation options to shuttle it's staff from outlying parking lots to EverBank Field on game day.

SMG had a contract with 95 South Tours and Transportation to provide that service but the transportation company's owner has recently been arrested amid charges of stealing school buses.

Alphonso Rock, 44, was arrested on November 4 andcharged with stealing five school buses. Two of them were found at the Fairgrounds, being used to transport Florida-Georgia fans. At Rock's business on Lane Avenue North, police say three more stolen buses were found.

Police also found another bus with the vehicle identification number removed.

Two of the stolen buses were from Lowndes County, Georgia, one from First Student in Jacksonville according to police.

Police also found three stolen buses in Gainesville two days later, labeled 95 South Tours. Two of those were from Flagler County, a surveillance video shows the buses being driven off the property during the night.

Nov. 18, in Flagler County, detectives recovereda stolen bus in Palm Coast. The bus was being rented by Palm Harbor Academy from 95 South Tours.

Flagler County Sheriff James Manfre described the serial bus thefts as "part of an elaborate theft ring operating in Northeast Florida and South Georgia."

In a statement fromSMG, until legal proceedings are concluded with Rock and 95 south tours,they are exploring other options to shuttle it's employees to EverBank Field.

First Coast News tried to contact Rock and his attorney, but did not hear back.

95 South Tours also provides parents the service totransport charter school students at a monthly cost. No word from 95 South on the status of that service.
