Witness says thief fell through floor of condemned building

Police are piecing together what happened following a break-in complaint at the Renaissance Learning Center in Martin.

Lorraine Martin says she was outside on a break when she heard a crash coming from the condemned Martin High School building next door.

"I thought some of the roof was falling in," she said. "A few seconds later this man just waltzes out the door and he had fallen through the floor."

Martin says the man was in his mid 40s, about 5'7", heavyset, with sandy blonde hair.

Floyd County School District officials say they plan to take steps to make the condemned building more difficult to access in the future.
