By QCS Staff

Police are seeking help to identify a man they say broke into Tucumcari Middle School on Sept. 22, a Saturday.

At 11:14 a.m. the security video at the school shows a man entering the building through a window in one of the classrooms, according to police reports.

The man could then be seen on video checking for unlocked doors and going through teachers’ desks, according to the police report. The subject entered the building twice, once when he was wearing a green colored shirt, blue jeans and a black baseball cap, and a second time when he had a camouflage cap, the police report states.

The suspect had a camera in his hand but it’s unknown if the school was missing a camera.

Crime Stoppers has agreed to pay up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspect.
Anyone with information can call the Tucumcari Police Department at 461-2160 or Crime Stoppers at 461-3507.
