OCEANA -

A Wyoming County man is arrested inside of a middle school just hours before school starts.

59 News cameras were rolling as police hauled Jason Goodwin away in handcuffs. Police said he was caught red handed inside an office at Oceana Middle School. They said a 911 call from a school employee tipped police off.

"The janitor was reporting to work this morning and noticed the glass in the main office door was broken and backed out and called 911," J. E. Barlow, Oceana Police Chief said.

Folks in the area were just learning about Goodwin's early morning arrest. They said it is startling that was crime was going down, just hours before students were dropped off.

"I am very worried and upset, at the same time, [there are a lot of] people with a drug problems that they've got it. It is hard to tell what they might do," Kathy Fortner, of Coal Mountain said.

Goodwin is facing list of charges including, breaking and entering and petit larceny.

This isn't the first time Goodwin has been arrested. 59 News crews found out this is the fourth time Goodwin has been arrested on breaking and entering charges. Police said Goodwin was arrested for a pair of break-in's at Mike's Automotive in January and February.

Police said Goodwin was arrested at Oceana Middle School carrying a 12-inch knife. They said with the start of school just hours after the break in, police are happy they were able to make a swift arrest.
