GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – School officials say one is under arrest after nearly 20 trees at Gloversville High School were cut down. 

On Friday, high school personnel learned 17 trees, many of which had been planted in remembrance of the deceased or had been given to the school by graduating classes, had been cut down sometime overnight.

“These trees were memorials and greatly added to landscape around our school,” Superintendent Michael Vanyo said. “Any information the public can provide that will lead to the apprehension of the individual or individuals responsible will be greatly appreciated by the entire community.”

Kurtis Callen, 18, of Gloversville was arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief, criminal trespass, and assault in the third-degree. 

Police say that after reviewing surveilance video, an individual Callen allegedly attempted to recruit to assist came forward to speak with officers. Other witnesses also came forward, leading to his arrest. The assault charge stems form a previous incident where officers say he struck a female victim.
