A Millstadt woman was arrested and charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence and a felony in criminal damage to property Monday.
The St. Clair County Sheriff's Department reports they were called to the 5600 block of Saxtown Road in Millstadt at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Deputies found a 2002 Jeep stuck in a field, which came to a stop about 150 feet off the road, apparently after having driven through several properties along 5500 and 5600 Saxtown Road. The Jeep drove through a gate and also hit at least four mailboxes.
Landscaping damage, including fencing, at one home is estimated at $10,000, the sheriff's department said.
The driver was in the Jeep when deputies arrived. Cynthia L. Dori, 59, of Millstadt, was charged with one count of criminal damage to property, a Class 3 Felony, and one count of DUI, a misdemeanor.
