Surveillance shows 2 masked robbers breaking into St. Martin Elementary School

JACKSON COUNTY -- Authorities are searching for two people they say broke into St. Martin Elementary School early Friday morning and damaged a vending machine and computers, Sheriff Mike Ezell said.

Ezell said employees who arrived at the school at 6:55 a.m. reported the break-in.

"Futher investigation revealed that the break room, library, several offices and classroom where entry was gained were all in disarray," he said.

Surveillance footage showed two males wearing masks outside the school between 2:30 and 3:15 a.m.

Ezell said they got in by breaking a classroom window. They damaged computer equipment in that classroom, he said, as well as a vending machine in the break room, a computer in the library and computer equipment in the office.

Officials are searching for leads and tips. Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Lon Ward at 875-6823.
