Man accused of vandalism

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Monday after he allegedly vandalized a vehicle.

Jacob Miles Lewis, 23, of Tahlequah, was booked for destruction of private property. A witness said Lewis was asleep and later awakened by someone, and he became angry. He allegedly beat on a car with his fist and cracked a windshield, and put dents into the vehicle’s roof.

Deputies spoke to Faye Butler Monday after some horses were running loose.

Mary Smith told deputies Monday medication was stolen.

Bobby Mayfield told deputies Monday about the theft of his truck, which is a 2004 Chevrolet C4E with a tag number of IO6-263. The truck is white with blue letters on the sides that say Cherokee Nation Towers. Mayfield said numerous tools were in the back of the truck.
