Authorities say thousands of dollars in copper, fixtures and wiring were stolen from a vacant Pontiac school that's undergoing renovations.
The Oakland County sheriff's department said the thefts from Bethune School took place over the weekend.
Deputies said the building didn't have power, but an alarm was operating on a battery backup and there weren't any reports it was set off.
The sheriff's department didn't have any suspect information Tuesday.
The school is off Lake Street, near Voorheis and Telegraph.
