WOODBURY – A Waterbury teenager who may have been interested in meeting a female student was charged with loitering and resisting arrest Wednesday morning at Nonnewaug High School.
When questioned by student resource officer Christopher O’Toole, 18-year-old Jeffrey Mark Normandin said he was a new student. O’Toole escorted Normandin to the main office for verification, and Normandin fled the building when O’Toole was speaking with Nonnewaug Principal Julie Luby.
After a chase on foot, Normandin was apprehended by O’Toole.
Investigating officer Tim Wright of the Woodbury Police Department said Normandin allegedly walked from his home on Devonwood Dr. in Waterbury to Nonnewaug. According to Google Maps, the 9-mile walk would take a little more than 3 hours.
Normandid was released after posting a $2,500 bond, and is scheduled to appear in Waterbury Superior Court on May 15.
In a letter to Region 14 parents and guardians, Superintendent of Schools Joseph A. Olzacki said students and staff remained safe and unharmed during the event.
