A janitor is charged with burglarizing the Miami-Dade County school where he worked.

Dwayne Davis works as a janitor at Madison Middle School in Miami, where, police say, surveillance video captured him and another man wandering the school one Saturday.

"Over the weekend, sometimes they need to go to the school, they need to notify an administrator before coming on to the campus," said Ivan Silva with Miami-Dade Schools Police. "On that day, he did not."

School officials may have never noticed, but an administrator's office was turned upside down.

"The administrator that that office belongs to, he found that his office had been ransacked and some property had been taken," said Silva.

A $4,000 ID scanner, cash, food, and a pair of Miami Dolphins tickets were missing. School officials then confronted Davis.

"When he saw the video, he basically told the administration that he had messed up," said Silva.

Davis was arrested two weeks later and charged with three counts of unoccupied burglary, two counts of third-degree grand theft, and one count of accessory after the fact. He bonded out of jail Saturday.
