MESQUITE (KRLD) - Police are looking for a man they say broke into, and spent over five hours in North Mesquite High School. 

Sergeant Joseph Thompson says the suspect went through each room taking things on Monday. He then decided to wash up.

"He appears to have taken his shirt off, and cleaned up a bit, before he put another shirt on," he says.

The suspect started to compile things he intended to steal, before accidentally tripping an alarm. The suspect ran off before police arrived. 

Thompson says the suspect is a white male, 20-30-years-old, approximately 6’ tall with a medium build.  He has brown hair, and a light beard. 

A $5,000 reward is being offered in the case.
