A local man, Areli River, 34, 1440 Prairie Du Chien Road, was charged Wednesday with second-degree criminal mischief.

On March 28, River was reportedly found in the Oakland Cemetery, 1000 Brown St. River allegedly wrote on the cemetary fences, garage doors, and other areas with black magic marker, according to the report.

River was leaving the cemetary when he was confronted by the cemetary supervisor, and admitted to defacing the property for the last few days, according to the report. The estimated cost to restore the property is $1,200.

Second-degree criminal mischief is considered a Class-D felony and is punishable of up to five years in jail and a maximum fine of $7,500.
