Taylorsville • Authorities are trying to find a burglar who broke into a Taylorsville elementary school and later abandoned his shoes and some stolen equipment while fleeing from officers.

Unified Police say the break-in was reported at Vista Elementary School around 6 a.m. Monday.

Officers saw a man dressed in black who ran out of the school’s south doors and behind the building.

Police chased the man but were unable to catch him.

The man’s shoes and some stolen computer parts and food were left behind.

Investigators believe the man broke a window to enter the school.

It’s unclear if he managed to get away with any stolen items.
