The Silverton Police Department has arrested a Mount Angel man they claim was responsible for a vandalism spree that defaced multiple public facilities and local businesses.

Roman L. Cunningham, 23, was arrested Dec. 20, 2022, on 24 felony counts of aggravated first-degree criminal mischief for incidents taking place within the prior month.

Police said Cunningham repeatedly left graffiti at Town Square Park, Coolidge McClaine Park, local bridges, road signs, and businesses. Police Chief Jim Anglemier estimated the cost to clean and repair the damage was around $4,000.

Cunningham was booked and released from the Marion County Jail and the case has been referred to the Marion County District Attorneys’ Office. If convicted as charged, he faces up to five years in prison and a $125,000 fine on each count.
