A Lone Tree man was arrested July 26 for allegedly vandalizing 18 cars in January while the victims participated in a prayer meeting in Evergreen. Wilbur Leonard Pugh, 50, is charged with felony criminal mischief and domestic violence harassment-stalking.

Pugh’s former girlfriend’s car was among those damaged when a gel-based paint thinner was poured on them. The paint thinner eroded the vehicles’ paint down to bare metal, causing more than $65,000 in damages.

The cars were parked at The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park, a facility that hosts weddings and other group events.

Investigators have pursued leads since the incident occurred, finally arresting Pugh at his Lone Tree home in late July.
