COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police have released several photos of a man wanted for causing $10,900 in damage at a high school.

Police were called to Eau Claire High School on Monticello Road at about 9 a.m. on Saturday, February 15th for a report of vandalism.  Surveillance video at the school showed a man outside the school at about 6:30 a.m. on the 15th.

Still photos from the surveillance video are attached to this story.  Investigators believe the man in these photos is the suspect.

Investigators say it does not appear anything was stolen from the school, but police found glass display cases and windows smashed, graffiti in hallways and damaged school equipment, including a computer.  Police say the suspect entered the school through a shattered glass door.

If you recognize the man in these photos, or know anything about the break-in at the school, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
