Lawrence Police were called Lawrence High School, 1901 Louisiana Street, at 2:56 Thursday morning after a passerby reported a man trying to break into one of the annex buildings.

The man was said to have been hitting the doors with a trashcan. The annex building's address is 2017 Louisiana Street.

At least six LPD units responded. On their arrival officers reportedly found the glass in one of the doors had been broken out. Several officers entered the building and located one man inside. That man was taken into custody at 3:00 a.m..

Booking records show the 43-year-old, Lawrence man now faces charges of criminal damage to property and criminal trespassing.

No other information was immediately available. Check back with the Lawrence Journal-World later this morning for updates to this story.
