Case adjourned until August
GLOVERSVILLE-The court hearing for a teen who is accused of cutting down more than a dozen trees at Gloversville High School was adjourned until Aug. 13.
Kurtis Callen, 18, of 132 Norboro Road, was charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a felony, and third-degree criminal trespass.
Police previously said officers were patrolling in the area of the high school around 3 a.m. June 13, when an officer noticed the trees had been cut and an unidentified vehicle pulled into one of the parking lots. The vehicle left the scene when officers approached.
Police said it was later determined Callen was driving the pickup truck.
Some of the trees were memorials to the deceased and gifts to the district by previous graduating classes.
Police said an investigation also led to the arrest of Vincent A. Scott, who police said served as a lookout during the incident.
Scott, 18, of 98 S. Judson St., was charged with third-degree criminal trespass and sixth-degree conspiracy, both misdemeanors.
The court could not provide the status of Scott’s case this morning.
