Janitor Breaks Into Vicksburg School And Burns Books

Chicot Memorial

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Vicksburg man used his President’s Day off from school to break back into the building and hold a book-burning. 19-year-old Bershard Devaun Brooks is accused of entering Warren Central High School sometime early Monday and setting fire to books and papers sitting on a desk in an office. The remains of the fire were discovered around 9:00 AM by maintenance staff who called the police. Brooks was arrested by Vicksburg Police in his home around 1:00 PM. Police say Brooks was a worker for a janitorial service company at the school, who used his codes to disable the school alarm system to gain access to the building. No motive has been determined and police are continuing their investigation.
