BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - East Baton Rouge deputies say three males broke into two Baton Rouge schools early Monday morning, now they need help identifying those caught by the schools security cameras.

Sheriff's deputies found broken windows at Broadmoor Middle around 1 a.m., but it wasn't until a custodian came in for work that anyone was aware Broadmoor High had also had a break-in.

Pictures captured on the security cameras show three people, two dressed in pajama pants and carrying flashlights. Deputies say one of the individuals was also spotted on the cameras at the middle school, where someone broke a window to get in and tear through several classrooms. A vending machine was also found damaged.

A sheriff's office spokesperson says the intruder ran when the alarm in the office sounded.

The damage from the middle school is similar to what was found at the high school.

"[They] broke about 40 internal windows as well as stole 11 laptop computers, several speakers, a backpack, several other items," said Casey Rayborn Hicks, the sheriff's office spokesperson.

Deputies also found fingerprints at the high school.

If you can help deputies with identifying anyone in the surveillance clip you're asked to call Crimestoppers at 344-STOP.
