Wallingford Man Accuses Sandy Hook Staff of Faking School Shooting: Cops

Authorities have arrested a Wallingford, Connecticut, man who placed five harassing phone calls to Sandy Hook Elementary School and accused staff of fabricating the 2012 massacre that left 20 students and six educators dead, according to police.

Timothy Rogalski, 30, of Wallingford, left "four disturbing telephone messages" on the school answering machine Tuesday morning, according to police. He called back a fifth time and spoke to an administrative assistant.

Police said Rogalski also left messages on the machines of two other schools in Newtown.

He was arrested at his home in Wallingford and charged with five counts of harassment and one count of disorderly conduct out of Monroe. Newtown police also issued Rogalski a misdemeanor summons charging him with harassment.

Rogalski's bond was set at $2,500. He's being held at the Monroe Police Department and will appear in court Wednesday morning.
