Police: Vandal strikes cruisers

WARREN – A 21-year-old woman – who was already charged with disorderly conduct stemming from a separate incident last month – was being held at the Trumbull County Jail without bond on Wednesday after being accused of damaging three city police cruisers.

Megan Lentz of 3271 Lodwick Drive N.W., was arraigned on Wednesday on a felony vandalism charge stemming from an incident Tuesday morning outside the Warren Police Department. Warren police said she damaged mirrors and headlamps of three police cruisers and dented the vehicles’ quarter panels, causing about $5,000 in damage. Police said the vandalism took place between 1 and 6:40 a.m. while the vehicles were parked at the police station at 141 South Main St. S.E.

Lentz is due in Warren Municipal Court in that case at 10:30 a.m. Monday for a preliminary hearing in front of Judge Terry F. Ivanchak.

In an unrelated case, the Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office charged Lentz with misdemeanor disorderly conduct / unreasonable noise following a July 2 incident at the Trumbull County Courthouse during which court officials said she became unruly following proceedings for another person.

Lentz has a pretrial scheduled in that case at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 30 in front of Warren Municipal Court Judge Thomas P. Gysegem.
