Glenwood Springs man arrested for California school break-in

Staff report

A Glenwood Springs man was reportedly arrested last weekend in California for an alleged break-in at a school in Mendocino County.

The Ukiah Daily Journal reports that, around 8:15 p.m. Nov. 24 while conducting extra patrols near the Sherwood School in the town of Willits, sheriff’s deputies heard an alarm sounding from the school.

Deputies checked the building and found a window screen partially removed and a broken window pane, and found several boxes outside one of the classrooms. Deputies observed a man attempting to hide inside the building and ordered him out at gunpoint.

Patrick John Hafner, 58, from Glenwood Springs, was taken into custody without incident. Hafner was booked into the Mendocino County Jail on suspicion of felony burglary and vandalism and held on $15,000 bail.
