Sheriff Danny Hickman reports that the Alpena High School, Middle School, Elementary School and Gymnasium were broken into Tuesday evening, May 15.
School security cameras showed an individual, yet unidentified, breaking into the front door of the High School building at 10:20 p.m. Entry to all four buildings was gained by knocking out the glass in the front doors by using pieces of concrete to shatter that glass. The most damage was done in the High School building. Most of the classrooms door glass was shattered along with other rooms in the school.
The unknown suspect was cut possibly on the left hand or arm when they shattered the door glass to a classroom and reached in to unlock the door. Several drops of blood were found and collected in front of the door.
A full inventory of what was taken won't be available until school officials have had time to survey each room. Investigators with the Sheriff's Department were able to gather evidence at the scene.
