A Solon man has been accused of breaking into a middle school, high school, recreation center, and RJ's Store.

Tyler Yakish, 20, was charged June 29 with second-degree mischief and six counts of third-degree burglary.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff complaint, Yakish admitted in an interview that he and two other codefendants broke into the Solon Middle School and took four LCD projectors and removed a large safe.

He allegedly admitted to breaking into Solon High with one other person with the intentions of taking money from an ATM. Yakish reportedly stole water and Gatorade from a vending machine.

He caused more than $1,000 in damages to the school property by breaking a door, ATM, and vending machine, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, Yakish admitted to breaking into the Solon Recreation Area concession stand and stole soda and a nacho cheese dispenser, which was later located at his home.

In an interview, he also admitted to breaking into the back door of RJ's store with intention to commit theft but decided not to after hearing an alarm sound. He ended up going back in and took a 30 pack of Busch Light and Camel cigarettes with a codefendant, the complaint said.

Third-degree burglary and second-degree criminal mischief are Class-D felonies.
