The Carson City Sheriff's Office says they need the public's help identifying a suspicious subject who was found inside Carson City High School last Wednesday.

They said the staff members noticed an unknown subject walking around the school and since school is not in session, no one should have been there.

The staff tried to contact the unknown male and he told them he was "reminiscing." The male refused to identify himself and said he could go anywhere he wanted because he was a "taxpayer." The man left the school after that.

CCSO doesn't know of any threat against staff or students at the school and they said they are looking to identify the man for safety only at this time.

If you know anything about the case, you can contact CCSO Dispatch at (775) 887-2677. You will remain anonymous.
