Man accused of causing $250,000 in road damages

Posted: Updated:

A concrete worker from Dubuque faces criminal charges after authorities say he purposely drove through wet cement - a project by another company.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office received a report of vandalism on October 18th, in the 26000 block of Centerville Road.  That's where road work was being done by Horsefield Construction.  A complaint to authorities reported a person driving a truck owned by another company, Perfection Concrete, had driven onto a closed road, and through freshly-poured cement.  Perfection Concrete had no affiliation to the project.

After an investigation, the sheriff's office charged 30-year-old Vance O'Hara of Dubuque with Criminal Mischief in the First Degree, Criminal Trespassing, and Driving Under Suspension.  

Damage to the road is estimated between $200,000 and $250,000.

Calls to Perfection Concrete to check on O'Hara's current employment status are currently unsuccessful.
