Teen arrested after trespassing at school


NAUGATUCK — A Seymour teenager was arrested Monday after gaining access to Naugatuck High School over the weekend.

Naugatuck police spokesman Lt. Bryan Cammarata said the 16-year-old jump a fence to get into a courtyard of the school on Sunday and entered the building through an unlocked door that led to the courtyard. He then let two other teenagers into the building, Cammarata said.

The three spent about 10 minutes walking around the school trying to get into other areas that were locked, Cammarata said. A custodian was in the school at the time, he said, and probably scared them off.

No damage or thefts were reported by staff members, Cammarata said.

Police responded to the school on Monday morning for a trespassing complaint after security noticed the teenagers on surveillance footage, Cammarata said. All three teenagers are current or former students at the school, he said, and security staff recognized them.

The 16-year-old, whose named wasn’t released due to his age, was charged with second-degree burglary. He was released to a parent and is scheduled to appear at Derby Superior Court on Dec. 7.

Police referred the other two teenagers to the borough’s juvenile review board in lieu of being arrested, Cammarata said.
