Two Nash County men have been arrested and charged with breaking into Southern Nash High School and attempting to steal money.

About 6:44 p.m. Friday, the Nash County Sheriff’s Office received a call about two men who reportedly broke into Southern Nash High School at 6446 Southern Nash High Road in Bailey. The men reportedly were seen by a school employee trying to break into a cash register and vending machine.

When deputies arrived, they found the two men still inside the cafeteria area. The suspects had white socks on their hands to prevent the transmission of fingerprints and were in possession of burglary tools. Nash County deputies were able to arrest them without incident.

William Gillis Baker, 25, of the 1300 block of East Old Spring Hope Road in Nashville, and Christopher John Jasinski, 25, of the 5000 block of Sanders Lane in Bailey, were arrested and each face charges of two counts of breaking into a coin/currency machine by force, felony breaking and entering, safe-cracking, larceny after breaking and entering, misdemeanor breaking or entering and possession of burglary tools.

Both suspects are being held under $35,000 secured bonds in the Nash County Detention Center and are scheduled for a first court appearance this morning in N.C. District Court in Nashville.

Anyone with further information about this incident should call the Nash County Sheriff’s Office at 252-459-1530.
