City of Tonawanda, NY – A city resident who had a run-in the law last year is being accused of vandalizing property that belongs to two city police officers.
Patrick George, 22, of the City of Tonawanda was arrested and arraigned Monday afternoon on nine charges stemming from two incidents over the weekend.
“Two of our police officers at their personal homes came out to discover that there was damage done to vehicles and damage done to property at both of their homes," said Captain Fredric Foels of the City of Tonawanda Police Department.
According to Foels, George admitted to police that he did the damage because the two officers arrested him after an incident at last year’s Canalfest.
“Apparently it was in the back of his mind for the last year that these two officers were involved in his arrest last year down at the canal fest and he felt that the time was right to get even," added Foels.
Both of the incidents happen Saturday. George is accused of moving one police officer’s bird bath stand to the middle of the officer’s street. Later in the day, George allegedly vandalized three license plates at another officer’s home.
George plead not guilty in City of Tonawanda court Monday and will appear back September 2nd.
