A Massachusetts man was arrested after police said he used an excavator to cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to a truck.
Connecticut State Police detectives were called to a report of “substantial criminal mischief” on state-owned land near the Mad River Dam in Winchester on Dec. 14, 2015. Upon arrival, detectives found a Kenworth truck cab that had been crushed by an excavator at the site. The damage of the truck was appraised at $62,984 by an insurance company.
During their investigation, state police determined the suspect was 23-year-old Corey Owens, of Nantucket, MA.
On March 21, 2017, Owens was charged with first-degree criminal mischief and making a false statement. He was arrested by the Nantucket Massachusetts Police Department and extradited to state police barrack in Litchfield where he is being held on a $5,000 bond.
Owens was scheduled to be arraigned at Litchfield Superior Court on Thursday.
