A man is arrested overnight after trying to break into the KSAL Studios.
At about 1:30 Friday morning a man appeared outside the KSAL lobby, on the third floor of the Townsite Building at 131 North Santa Fe in Downtown Salina.
The man was unable to gain entry to the locked lobby. He damaged a foyer area, tearing items off walls, knocked an old-style radio and large antique radio tube to the floor, and tore a thermostat off the wall.
The overnight disc jockey on duty called Salina Police. The man was found hiding in a bathroom when officers arrived, and taken into custody.
Police identify the intruder as 31-year-old Anthony Whittecar of Salina. He could face charges that include aggravated burglary, criminal damage to property, and attempted theft.
Police say that alcohol played a factor in the incident.
