Some kids in Middleboro were late to school this morning due to the handy work of a couple of crooks.

School officials say that batteries were stolen out of eight of the school district 27 buses.

The bus company First Student reported the theft at 6 a.m. An alert was sent to parents notifying them that their children's buses would be late as crews worked to replace the batteries.

The busing schedule is expected to return to normal tomorrow.
