Cleveland Police are searching for the identity of a man who entered Stuart School causing damage and loss.

According to reports, a computer was taken and damage was done to a sign.

Video security footage captured the suspect on the property, according to Detective Bill Parks, who is the lead investigator in the case.

Parks was not immediately available this morning due to another ongoing investigation.

According to Detective Matt Jenkins of the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigation Division, detectives are following up on a number of leads that have been received.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to contact law enforcement at 728-7311 and following the correct voice prompts.

- Heavy winds earlier today caused several trees to topple, according to reports from Bradley County 911.

Areas of heavy lightning and rain were also noted overnight. Reports indicated damage to a tree on Highway 60 near No Pone Road caused traffic issues when it fell.

There was also a tree reported downed on Frontage Road, possibly due to gusty winds that reached over 27 mph at times.

- Bradley County Fire-Rescue responded to a fire on Bell Street Wednesday evening. The victims of the fire were displaced and the Red Cross is reportedly aiding them.

According to BCFR Chief Troy Maney, flames were reported in the kitchen of the home.

The kitchen suffered the brunt of the damage; however, heavy smoke caused damage to other rooms in the home.

Maney said the 1,200-square-foot structure suffered approximately $20,000 damage.

Preliminary investigation into the cause of the fire revealed possible electrical problems, according to Maney.

No injuries were reported.
