Police: Man Breaks Into Ludington Middle School, Leaves Thousands of Dollars in Repair Costs
Smashed windows… broken vending machines…
Police say a man left thousands of dollars of damage in his wake after breaking into a Northern Michigan middle school.
The school wasn't the only target of his overnight crime spree.
Police arrested the man who they say also tried to smash into a business nearby.
They say Matthew Berry broke into O.J. DeJonge Middle School and tried to break-in to Northside Market, in Ludington.
The school estimates there are two to four thousand dollars in repair costs.
Discouraging news, for a district already trying to pinch pennies.
Berry was tracked down and arrested by police shortly after the burglary, thanks to eyes in the community.
He's now facing multiple charges for the crime.
