Two Men Charged with Felony Malicious Mischief A local company filed a report with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office on September 14, 2011. The company claimed that one of their company vehicles was deliberately damaged by two former employees. The complaint states that a representative of the company gave 28 year old Stewart Lott permission to remove personal items from the vehicle before he returned it to the company. Lott, a resident of 120 Piney Woods Drive, had been terminated from his position with the company. The complaint goes on to say that Lott and his accomplice, Michael Boler, 32, of 1195 Standard Hill, purposefully damaged the vehicle’s front bumper, broke out the rear window and damaged a tail light. Sheriff Martin Pace said that the vehicle had been “wrapped” with a customized logo and that the shrink wrap had also been damaged during the course of the other damage. The company could give no exact cost to repair all the damage, at the time the complaint was filed, but could definitively say that there were more than $500 in damages. That $500 threshold automatically moved the charge of malicious mischief from a misdemeanor to a felony. Boler, upon learning that a warrant had been issued for his arrest, turned himself in to the WCSO at 9:45 am on Monday, September 26, 2011. Lott did the same at 9 am this morning. Both men have been granted a $1,500 bond. Boler bonded out on Monday. Stewart, as of press time, was completing the booking process and was expected to be released on bond shortly thereafter. As always, the two men are presumed to be innocent until they are proven guilty in a court of law.]]]]> ]]>
