STARKS (WGME) -- Thousands of dollars in damage was discovered in a cornfield, and now a New Sharon man is charged with a felony.

State police say this case started with a Facebook video.

It showed a truck spinning its tires and tearing up the field somewhere in Franklin or Somerset County.

Farmers were urged to check their fields, and that's when they got a call from a farmer in Starks, who had significant damage, costing more than $5,000.

The suspect, 19-year-old Kristopher Welch is facing an aggravated criminal mischief charge.
