Criminal Mischief

A 56-year-old Park City man followed another customer into the storage units, got what he wanted out of his container, and then discovered himself barred outside the gate. The man tried to exit the building using his code, but he was unable to do so because he had not paid his rent. The individual decided to ram the storage unit fence with his pickup to escape rather than make contact with the on-site property management.

The individual damaged the gate to the tune of $15,000–$20,000. He was detained on charges of felony criminal mischief. He was also charged with possession. A user-sized quantity of THC gummies were discovered while the man’s backpack was being inventoried.
