The Cheboygan County Sheriff’s Office arrested three people they say caused thousands of dollars in damage to hundreds of trees.

Deputies were called to US 23 and Harmony Lane Monday for three people illegally cutting boughs on state and private property.

When deputies got there, they say the three ran.

Two were arrested immediately, the other after a search by K-9 units.

The sheriff’s office believes they’re responsible for damage to more than 600 trees in four locations in Cheboygan County.

Names will be released when they’re officially charged.
