Arrest made in Serpent Mound case

Tire tracks lead up to the burial hill at Serpent Mound.

An arrest has been made after a portion of Serpent Mound was vandalized this past weekend as vehicle tracks can be seen on a portion of the park.

The arrest was made Tuesday night but the Adams County Sheriff’s Office said the name of the individual who confessed to the crime won’t be released until Wednesday morning.

“An arrest was made after a detective followed up on some evidence we had,” Deputy John Schadle said.

Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor in the incident, according to authorities.

Serpent Mound officials say the incident occurred between 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 4, and 8:40 a.m. on Sunday, July 5.

Adams County Sheriff Kimmy Rogers is scheduled to meet with representatives from Serpent Mound to review video surveillance footage to try to get a better idea what happened.

“I know it did happen but we’re waiting to review the video,” Rogers said.

A spokesperson with Serpent Mound said the incident is “unfortunate,” but the park will continue to publicize the mound as usual.

“We’re deeply saddened by it but restoration will take place,” Deanna Turner, an employee at the park said.

Information of the individual arrested can be found at www.peoplesdefender.com when the individual is formally charged Wednesday morning.
