SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Ventura County have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with threatening graffiti, including swastikas, which led officials to shut down an elementary school.
The Ventura County Star says Stephen Lazarus of Simi Valley was held with bail set at $50,000.
Investigators say they believe Lazarus acted alone and did not have the means to carry out any threats.
Simi Valley's Justin Elementary School was closed after the graffiti was discovered Monday. The school was to remain closed Tuesday but was reopened after police informed district officials of the arrest.
