Deputies: Man broke into Warner Robins school twice in same weekend
WARNER ROBINS, Ga. -- Law enforcement is looking for a suspect who reportedly broke into Shirley Hills Elementary School at least twice in one weekend, a Houston County Sheriff's report said.
According to the report, the responding deputy met with the school's principal on Monday, who reported that it appeared someone had broken into her office over the weekend.
The principal reportedly said she always locks her doors before leaving and added the only people who should have had keys to get in were other school officials.
The report said surveillance footage shows a male suspect walking on the north side of the school near the student pick-up area on Saturday, December 1. He was reportedly wearing blue jeans, a gray hoodie and a black baseball cap. Shortly after that, the suspect was seen on camera walking around the front of the school, the report said.
Just after 4:30 that same day, the report said the same suspect was seen on surveillance video at the entrance to the student media center. The suspect allegedly looked through the school's lost and found clothing and took a black backpack and some clothes.
The report said footage also showed the suspect taking a red bicycle on the property and walking back towards the school at 4:45 p.m. before leaving down Ivelyn Dr.
On Sunday, December 2, the suspect reportedly came back to the school at 3:22 a.m. and broke in, still wearing the same blue jeans, gray hoodie and black baseball cap, and carrying a black backpack.
Just after 3:33 a.m., the report said surveillance video showed the suspect out of the school's front entrance but wearing a baby blue shirt with a Batman logo on the front.
Deputies said the school's principal reported the all of her candy, $10, a magic eight ball game and a ThinkPad were missing from her office.
