A recent Red Bud High School alum (2018) has been charged with breaking into the school overnight this past weekend. Mason Manning, 19, was charged by the Red Bud Police Department with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to state property.

According to the report, surveillance cameras showed a white male with a beard gaining entry into the school early Sunday morning (about 1 a.m.) on July 28. For nearly an hour, the person walked the halls, lifting weights, sweeping and mopping. As he exited the building, he had put on what appeared to be a Viking or Barbarian costume from clothing stored in the drama department’s wardrobe. The initial investigation showed no damage to the school, and the only items being stolen were the clothing from the drama department.

The Red Bud School District shared the video with the Red Bud Police Department. In addition, the RBCUSD posted the video on social media to ask the public for their help in identifying the person. By Monday evening, Manning had turned himself into the Red Bud Police Department and identified himself as the man being sought for breaking into the school. He also returned the clothing from the drama department.

Red Bud Superintendent Jonathan Tallman thanks the public for their support during this situation. He added the district will make sure a break-in like this does not occur in the future.
