Sussex County Residents Charged in Vandalism of Capt. John Smith Monument

Posted:

LAUREL, Del. (AP) - Authorities say four Laurel residents have been linked to a vandalism incident involving a monument to 17th-century English explorer Capt. John Smith.
    
Officials said the incident happened April 1 at the Phillips Landing boat ramp near Laurel, where the Smith monument was pulled down and four road signs damaged.
    
Authorities said Friday that 22-year-old Mike A. Hicks was fined $180 and ordered to pay restitution after being charged with criminal mischief and trespassing in a state wildlife area. Two 18-year-olds, Matthew J. Trivits and Zachary Lecates, were fined $92 each and ordered to perform 16 hours of community service for trespassing.
    
Charges of trespassing and criminal mischief are pending against a juvenile.
    
The monument commemorates Smith's expedition exploring the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, including the Nanticoke River.
