Kentucky State Police have arrested a Glendale man on charges of burglary and criminal mischief in connection with a break-in at East Hardin Middle School.
KSP Post 4 received a call Sunday morning from the school’s assistant principal reporting a break-in and vandalism, police said. School staff identified Christopher Blaine, 18, of Glendale on security video. Several doors and windows were destroyed, police said, resulting in thousands of dollars in damage.
KSP Trooper Jack Baumgardner responded to Blaine’s residence, where Blaine implicated himself and two minors in the break-in, according to a news release from KSP spokesman Trooper Norman Chaffins. Blaine was charged with second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal mischief.
Charges against the minors are pending, police said. The investigation is ongoing.
