A man accused of breaking into a Goose Creek school Sunday night said he was trying to get lunch money for a new job, according to police.
Goose Creek police responded to an alarm at Stratford High School about 9:30 p.m. They chased down a man with a yellow crowbar, a prying instrument and $125 in dollar bills that had been taken from vending machines, according to the incident report.
The man told police he was breaking in because he was starting a new job the next day and needed lunch money, according to the report.
Matthew Thomas Moses, 33, of Ladson was charged with second-degree burglary, making implements capable of being used in a crime and resisting arrest. He’s being held at the Berkeley County jail.
Police are reviewing a videotape of a break-in at Stratford Thursday to see if that was also Moses, according to the report.
