STRATFORD -- Charges against three teens in connection with a January fire have been upgraded to adult court.
This comes after a third teenager has been arrested in connection with the fire that was set at the American Shakespeare Theater in January. Police said they received a tip in the case that lead to the arrests.
Vincent Michael Keller, 18, Christopher Sakowicz, 18 of Stratford and Logan Caraballo, 17 of Shelton have been charged in the case. They were originally charged as juveniles, but the case has moved to adult court.
Police arrested two of the teens, who officials said attended Bunnell High School, on Monday. They said, "After a lengthy investigation the Stratford Police Department arrested two juveniles in connection with recent arson and burglary incidents within the town including the arson at Shakespeare Theater. "
The theater burned to the ground in January and had not hosted a play since 1989. It was built in 1955 and modeled after London's Globe Theatre, which famously burned in 1613. Damages amounted to $1.7 million said officials.
