IOWA CITY — Police say an Iowa City man broke into a high school because he wanted to check out the security system.
Forrest Kristian Weger was arrested early Tuesday morning at Iowa City High School after police responded to a burglary alarm. Police found an unsecured door on the east side of the school’s new building.
The Gazette  reports surveillance video shows Weger entering several rooms and trying to enter others. He also was found with a video recorder. He told police he entered the school to see if there was a security system.
The newspaper reports the 29-year-old has a lengthy criminal record including theft charges and drug violations.
Weger remains at the Johnson County Jail and faces a third-degree burglary charge. Records do not list an attorney.
