A Syracuse man has been arrested after city police say he caused more than 25 thousand dollars in damage in several city parks.

 30 year old David Thomas is accused of using his car to run down over 60 tree at those parks. The parks that were hit include McChesney Park, Schiller Park and Rose Hill Cemetery.

 Thomas has now been charged with criminal mischief and city police say they don't know the reason Thomas wanted to damage the trees. Most of the small trees were completely uprooted and damaged to the point that they are now expected to survive if they were replanted.
