Four young Springtown men and one juvenile are accused of demolishing more than 40 street signs with a vehicle along several area streets and roads in the overnight hours of Friday, Sept. 29 into Saturday morning, Sept. 30.
Joe Darrell Pierce II, 17, Austin Matthew Sexton, 17, Wayland Cooper Frizzell, 18, and Alejandro Jose Perez, 17, were arrested Friday, Oct. 6, and each was charged with one count of criminal mischief $2,500-$30,000.
The charge is a state jail felony and carries a possible penalty of 180 days to two years in a state jail and a fine up to $10,000.
Although bond was recommended to be $7,500 apiece for the four adults charged in the case, they were instead released on personal recognizance bonds the day they were arrested.
Because he is a juvenile, no information is available about the fifth suspect.
