Kelly Christopher Powell was arrested at Lawrence High School after police responded to a report of a break-in about 3 a.m., said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman. A resident living near the school, awakened by loud banging noises, reported to police that a man was hitting the building's east entrance doors with a trash can.

When several officers arrived at the building, the man had discarded the trash can and kicked out the glass in one door, McKinley said. Officers caught the man as he entered the building, with one leg dangling out of the entrance, and arrested him.

McKinley said it was unclear what the motive behind the break-in was, and Powell, when arrested, declined to speak with officers.

Powell was booked into Douglas County Jail, where he remained Thursday with bond set at $200.

He was looking for his GED and forgot where he left it!

"I'll just complete my stealthy breakin ...

and hide in there and get a healthy meal mingled amongst the high schoolers for breakfast, ... that's it!"

Is this the same Kelly Powell that was once a person of interest in the Randy Leach disappearance, April 1988?

Maybe while attending high school in his youth he should have paid attention.

Now you can plainly see why the schools need more money. They are clearly breaking down the doors to get an education.

I'm not trying to be difficult, but can I ask why the same story is posted twice on the LJW home page? It seems unnecessary.

Maybe he had a big test today and wanted to flood the bathrooms to get school cancelled....

More than this guy's leg is dangling....check to see if the brain stem is still attached. I also love how he has to hold up his own mugshot info -- and that his name is split:

Not sure why I find that so funny but....it is America and I can laugh at whatever I want right?
