MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) – A junior high school visited by Education Secretary Rod Paige on Friday was the site of a break-in the night before, police said.

Police arrested four youths in a car Thursday night, accused of stealing computers from Southside Middle School in Manchester. Their ages ranged from 17 to 19.

Computers were found in the car, Manchester Police Sgt. Sean Fournier said.

A neighbor saw people loading and unloading items from one of school’s the portable classroom buildings and called police about 9:30 p.m., Fournier said.

The youths were arrested near the building.

The burglary and arrests did not threaten preparations for Paige’s visit, Fournier said.
