PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police have recovered more than 30 batteries that were stolen from a bus yard, a theft that delayed the start of school for a Rhode Island city.

It was reported when a dozen East Providence buses wouldn’t start Wednesday. Police say 36 batteries were stolen from the buses.

The start of the school day was delayed by two hours. Other buses were brought in to bring children to school.

The back gate of the bus yard was left open overnight, allowing access to the buses. The batteries are accessible from outside the bus.

Police say the batteries were located at Berger Recycling in Pawtucket. Police took them and returned them to the bus company.

Police say they’re searching for suspects. No arrests have been made.
