SHELTON -

Police say they have arrested a 14-year-old boy for vandalism so extensive in Shelton that school had to be canceled for a day.

Authorities received a complaint Feb. 2 about the vandalism at Holy Trinity Catholic School.

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.
