BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man has admitted breaking into a high school and later locking himself in a supply closet.

The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/1tdW0xV ) reports that 34-year-old Phillip Grider on Wednesday pleaded guilty to criminal trespass. Police on Tuesday found him locked in the closet at Bismarck High School.

Officers were called around 9:10 p.m. Tuesday after a school employee saw Grider attempting to steal items from lockers in the boys’ locker room.

Bismarck Police Lt. Steve Scheuer says the employee told Grider to leave the school, but instead, he barricaded himself in the closet until police took him into custody.

Grider was sentenced to three days in jail for the Class B misdemeanor. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
