MERCED, Calif. (KMPH) -

A school bus driver was arrested in Merced after authorities say they caught him with an underage girl in the back of a car.

Merced Police say they arrested 58-year-old Efrain Orozco, of Planada, last Tuesday after a school resource officer found him parked in an alleyway between 8th and 9th avenues.

Officers say a 17-year-old girl, who attends a local school, was in the backseat with Orozco. They say both had their pants down.

Police say the teen girl was riding on the school bus that Orozco had been driving earlier in the day and the two met shortly after he completed his route.

Orozco was booked into the Merced County Jail and later bailed out. He faces charges of contact of a minor with the intent to commit sexual acts.

Police say they informed the school bus company of Orozco's arrest. School administrators were also notified of the incident.
