WASHINGTON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – An 18-year-old is facing numerous charges after he allegedly broke into a Washington, Missouri school.

A janitor at Saint Francis Borgia Grade School saw a broken window in the rear of the school and notified police at 6:00 a.m. Wednesday. The school was closed on Thursday and Friday while police investigated the incident.

School officials said numerous rooms were vandalized. Police said thieves took a television, some loose change, and other items.

Officials believe the suspect cut himself while entering the school because blood was found. Teachers went to school to clean up the damage.

Police arrested Michael D. Faifer, 18, Thursday night and charged him with second-degree burglary, stealing and property damage, all felonies. He is currently being held on a $35,000 cash-only bond.

According to authorities, Faifer said he and two other at-large suspects committed the crime because they were bored.

Washington police and detectives are investigating.
