Four teens charged with trespassing at Ridgefield High School

Four Ridgefield teenagers were charged with trespassing on school grounds Wednesday, March 21, at 1:22 a.m.

Police Capt. Jeff Kreitz said the four males entered Ridgefield High School through an unlocked door.

“This incident is not connected with the previous incidents of vandalism that had occurred at RHS or in town,” Kreitz said.

He added that nothing was taken and that no property damage occurred during the trespassing.

Two of the teens charged — legal adults over the age of 18 — were given misdemeanor summonses for criminal trespassing in the second degree. They were released and are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, April 10.

The other individuals arrested in the break-in, who police say were minors, were given juvenile summonses for trespassing in the second degree. They were released with a promise to appear in Bridgeport Juvenile Court at a later date.

RHS Principal Stacey Gross declined to comment on any disciplinary actions taken in school, citing educational law. In an email to The Press on Thursday, March 22, she said the incident was under review.
