Police set up a sting to catch a suspected serial burglar who kept targeting a north side school.
The thief is accused of breaking into the International Academy of Columbus night after night.
With access to the school, he could have lifted anything—including expensive laptops. Instead, he went for snacks and cash.
School employees reviewed surveillance video and saw that the thief used pencils to prop windows open after taking things like brownies, tootsie rolls and lollipops.
Police were awaiting the accused hungry bandit when he reentered the building Thursday night.
Authorities arrested a 15-year-old, who school officials said was not a student at the school. The identity of the teenager was not released.
