New Sharon man charged with causing thousands of dollars in damage to cornfield
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.
