Police charge 14-year-old with Catholic school vandalism

SHELTON, Conn. (AP) — Police say they have arrested a 14-year-old boy for vandalism so extensive in Connecticut that school had to be canceled for a day.

Authorities received a complaint about the vandalism at Holy Trinity Catholic School in Shelton Feb. 2. Investigators found lockers, desks and classroom walls spray painted with sexual references and depictions.

The damage has been estimated in excess of $4,000.

Police arrested the boy Monday and charged him with burglary, criminal trespass and criminal mischief. His name has not been released due to his age.
