A 21-year-old Fredericksburg man was jailed after breaking into a south Stafford public school on April 16 and vandalizing a classroom during spring break, according to Stafford County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Amanda Vicinanzo.
At 8 a.m., Deputy Dupree responded to a reported vandalism at Ferry Farm Elementary School at 20 Pendleton Road.
An employee reported finding an office window broken and books scattered throughout a classroom.
The deputy reviewed video footage of a man walking through a school hallway and entering a classroom. After about a minute, he reappeared and went into a courtyard, which has no exit.
The man, later identified as Jeremy Bushey, climbed onto the roof, causing damage to drain pipes, gutters and a roof vent, and jumped to the school walkway. He left on a bicycle.
Through a photo, Bushey was identified and arrested for public intoxication on April 15.
When deputies took Bushey into custody at his residence, he admitted to the incident and said he had been very intoxicated.
He was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail on a $2,000 bond for breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony and destruction of property.
