Huntington Turnpike man charged with trespassing after cutting neighbor’s grass
A Huntington Turnpike resident turned himself in on a warrant for criminal trespassing in the third degree, criminal mischief in the third degree, and threatening in the second degree at the Trumbull Police Department at 3:25 p.m. Wednesday, June 29.
Police said John Silano, 41, has been involved in an ongoing dispute with a neighbor about where his property line ends and has been cutting the neighbor’s grass without permission.
According to a report, Silano threatened to kill his neighbor when the man had the land surveyed and built a fence establishing the line between the two properties.
The reported added that Silano was cutting the grass earlier in the month and drove towards his neighbor on the tractor, triggering the criminal mischief charge.
The neighbor told police that Silano repeatedly has come onto his lawn even after the properties were professional surveyed.
A Trumbull cop went over to Silano’s house to serve him the warrant for his arrest, but he did not answer the door, according to the report.
After turning himself in, he was released on a $500 bond and scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, July 13.
