Arnold, CA — Kevin Bledsoe of Dorrington has been arrested for cutting his former client´s trees in such a way that they would topple onto his house in high winds.
The trees were discovered at an Arnold vacation home in February. After a month long investigation the Calaveras County Sheriff´s Department was able to put together enough information from statements and evidence to obtain an arrest warrant.
The Department says 43-year old Bledsoe is a self-employed plumber who did some work for the homeowner Charles Dobbins. A civil dispute resulted over payment of work done.
Bledsoe was arrested at his home on March 18 for felony vandalism. He was released after posting $15,000 bail.
