Thieves taking fixtures from school bathrooms

HONOLULU (AP) - Thieves are stealing bathroom fixtures from Ewa Beach schools.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says repairs are under way after someone made off with toilet flushers, sink drainage pipes, metal floor plates and other bathroom fixtures.

Bruce Iverson with Reynolds Recycling says the fixtures were probably stolen to sell as scrap metal.

The first theft took place about two weeks ago at the Ilima Intermediate school.

On Friday, two restrooms at the adjacent Campbell High School were targeted.

Police are investigating and say they have one or two suspects.
