Tuscumbia police are looking for a possible suspect who  broke into the Colbert County Board of Education's central office Tuesday night. 

Superintendent Gale Satchel said a board room window and vending machine were damaged, and snacks were taken from the vending machine.

Tuscumbia police are looking at video provided by the school district, Satchel said.

Police say the suspect also went down the road and vandalized the Tuscumbia Post Office by ripping a fire alarm off the wall, after he broke into the board of education. Police have a possible suspect in mind. His name is Jacob Hutchens, police say he looks similar to the man in the surveillence video and was spotted in the area around the time of the crimes.
