Boardman police charge woman with vandalism

BOARDMAN — A woman’s alleged attempt to make her eviction memorable for her landlord has led to felony vandalism charges.

Brittany Cook, 24, of Cook Avenue faces one count of vandalism for alleged acts that took place in April.

Then, the landlord of her Bonnie Place apartment told police he had a verbal altercation when he issued an eviction notice.

After Cook left, he found things missing, the doorknobs greased, the deadbolt changed, carpet damaged with “soap and assorted sauces,” a phone jack plastered over, holes punched in doors and a clogged toilet, according to a police report.

Officers also observed graffiti in the bedroom that referenced smashing the landlord’s face. The landlord estimated the damage totaled about $3,000.

Cook has a preliminary hearing set in for July 3 in Mahoning County Area Court.
