Kirkwood Police are asking for the public's help to catch a burglar who broke into Vianney High School early Sunday morning. Police say a man used a BB or pellet gun to break a door window to get inside about 2 a.m.
Police say he pulled on a mask after getting inside and tried to enter several classrooms. But he was caught on camera, both inside and outside the building.
Police say the suspect approached and left the school on foot via Maryhurst Drive.
He's described as a white male, 18-25 years old, wearing a blue T-shirt with chest emblem, two tone knit hat, blue jeans, and black shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Tim Brand at 314-984-6903 or the Kirkwood Police Department at 314-822-5858.
Wentzville police arrested 21-year-old David Moore in November for smashing through a glass door at Nu Way Concrete Forms and taking nearly $1,500 in cash.
Surveillance video showed the burglar pointing his toes outward as he walked. Surveillance tape shot four days earlier during business hours showed a man with the same walk. Employees had been suspicious of that man because he wore a heavy coat and gloves on a warm day. They wrote down his license plate number.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Moore pleaded guilty to burglary and theft Monday. In addition to probation he must serve 60 days of shock time and pay back the stolen money.
