He was seen on surveillance video trying to get into different rooms, according to the incident report, and he broke a window into the office area of the cafeteria and got $210 from a filing cabinet.

School officials reportedly recognized Blanks as a former student at the school. When Investigator Rueben Bishop arrested Blanks at his Elm Street home, with the assistance of Ellisville police. He was reportedly wearing a jacket that had also been reported stolen from the school.
