A Jan. 3 break-in at St. Jerome’s school on E. 29th Street has been solved — thanks to a saintly criminologist.
Police said someone broke into the parochial school, which is between Newkirk and Foster avenues, sometime after 8:50 am by shattering several classroom windows.
Once inside, the thief emptied a jar of cash collected for a religious donation, leaving several drops of blood in its place.
