A 24-year-old Dixon man has been arrested for breaking into Dixon High School and stealing shop equipment and candy.
Ryett Elms has been charged with stealing and burglary. Authorities in Pulaski County say the crime occurred last week at Dixon High School. Law enforcement officials were able to obtain video from inside the school and were able to identify Elms as their suspect.
Court records say the footage show Elms removing items from the shop building and FFA classroom. Elms also vandalized a concession stand and stole boxes of candy before discharging a fire extinguisher.
Elms admitted to crimes saying it was done out of boredom.
Elms has been linked to other crimes, including drugs and peeking into children’s bedroom windows.
