TROY, Mo. (AP) - Police in the eastern Missouri town of Troy are searching for a man caught on surveillance video ransacking a high school before making off with a safe.

The crime happened Monday night at Troy Buchanan High School. The man is shown on surveillance video forcing open a door into the boiler room, then using a hammer and screwdriver taken from a shop class to make his way into school offices.
