The first break-in happened late Wednesday night. A wiring issue stopped the alarm from setting off, said Sara Sandrik with Merced City School District, but it has since been fixed. Pictures show school supplies thrown across the classroom, leaving it in shambles.
The second incident occurred Thursday night, the suspect broke windows and dumped classroom materials from shelves to the ground. The alarm was triggered, and the suspect fled minutes later without taking anything.
School officials said the classrooms were cleaned up, and the vandalisms are under investigation.
