WILKES COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- An arrest has been made at Wilkes County Elementary School Monday morning.

The Wilkes County Sheriff's Office says Christopher Brian Ray, 48, has been charged with second degree burglary and possession of cocaine.

The sheriff's office says deputies were called to the school following reports of an intruder and arrived within 30 seconds.

Those deputies were told a man with red gym shorts was seen walking toward the school's gym. Deputies say they found Ray hiding inside the gym a short time later inside a rolled-up gym mat.

School was in session for students, but no one was hurt.

Sheriff Mark Moore says he is working alongside the GBI in this case. They're also looking into how long he was there before being found.
