BUCHANAN, Mich. (AP) - The start of classes may be delayed at a southwestern Michigan school that was stripped of copper components from its water and ventilation systems.

Officials with Buchanan Community Schools say repair work is taking place at Buchanan Middle School ahead of the scheduled Sept. 8 first day for students.

A break-in took place last weekend or early Monday at the school, which is under renovation. The overhaul had been scheduled to be completed next week.

Buchanan police say the suspect or suspects may have injuries, possibly chemical burns, from cutting a high-pressure line.

Additional security is planned along with more police patrols. Police are seeking tips from the public in the case.
