Police: Man charged with damaging floors at Plainville High School 



 PLAINVILLE — A Waterbury man faces charges after police said he and another man caused about $9,000 worth of damage to the floors of Plainville High School in May.

Krystyle Chandler, 20, of 285 Monroe Ave., Waterbury, was charged Monday with first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal trespass and loitering on school grounds. 

On May 21, the school principal reported two former students, one identified as Chandler, entered the school the previous day and marked the floors. Security video showed a current student opened a door to the high school for a second suspect, who was carrying a razor-type push scooter, according to Chandler’s arrest warrant. The second suspect, who has not been charged, opened the door for Chandler, who also had a scooter.

The two men rode the scooters inside the school for about 17 minutes, doing about $9,000 worth of damage, the warrant said.

Chandler was released on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on July 15.
