Ocala, Florida — An Ocala man was arrested after he was caught trespassing on school grounds.

Ocala Police Department officers responded to the 2500 block of Northeast 11th Court after a caller reported seeing a man, later identified as Nathan Manypenny, 32, looking in sheds and vehicles throughout the neighborhood.

While in route, the caller told dispatch that the man had jumped a fence at Oakcrest Elementary School.

There were still children on campus at the time of the incident.

When police made contact with Manypenny, he stated that he was allowed to be on campus because he was a student.

The officer detained the suspect and found that he was in possession of a knife.

Oakcrest principal, June Leinenbach, told police that she was concerned because there were still children present on the campus and that, she wanted Manypenny prosecuted for trespassing.

Manypenny, who is a convicted felon with a lengthy arrest record, was arrested and charged with Trespassing on School Grounds.

    They all have that same look. County lockup must be a nightmare for the guards when these guys go on their opioid/opiate withdrawals.

      I worked at a jail back in the early 90’s and YES, we had to deal with drugged out , brain fried people like this,~! but not to the level it’s seen now! but i remember an incident when I was walking down a corridor and it was a practice to ‘check on’ ‘trustees’ working outside their sections due to good’ behavior, but when I stopped this guy and asked how much longer he would be painting the hallway, he looked up at me with glazed eyes, and I knew he had been ‘huffing’ (sniffing paint!) I escorted him to my supervisors office, where he denied it of course, but we also found ‘paint residue’ around his ‘nose’. This was stupid as trustees are usually ‘short timers’ and he would have been released in another month! Oh, well as my favorite L.E.O. on LIVE P.D. show ‘Sticks’ Larsen, “We don’t arrest the intelligent ones” ha ha

    Boy the educational system has really gone to crap if a 32 yr old man is
    still in Elementary School. For Gods sake, give him a Social promotion.
    Lets get him into HS where he belongs.

    Just another pervert at OMS. When we had pedophiles lurking when my children attended. I offered a solution to the Principal McCollum. He turned down the Free cameras donation from a local defense contractor. This installation would allow the front office to monitor and see the campus. Glad they caught this one. But it is only a matter of time before one of our children are abducted and killed. Just like the near incident that occurred. The last time I check Ocala PD indicated that case is still open, but their investigation would be much more effective if the cameras were in place
