Shelton police arrested a 14-year-old local teen for causing more than $4,000 in damage to Holy Trinity Catholic School during a break-in earlier this month.
The arrest stemmed from a complaint received by the Shelton Police Department on Feb. 2, regarding a break-in at the school located at 503 Shelton Ave., said Det. Richard Bango.
Shelton detectives responded to the school and discovered several lockers, desks and classroom walls were spray painted with sexual references and depictions. The vandalism was so extensive that school had to be canceled for the day, Bango said.
The damages to the school were estimated in excess of $4,000, he added.
An investigation led to the arrested of the 14-year-old and he was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, and criminal mischief, police said.
The teen was given a court date at Bridgeport Juvenile Superior Court and released to his parents.
