An Oswego County man has been arrested for allegedly destroying American flags at cemetery grave sites.

State Police responded to the Mapleview Cemetery in Mexico for a criminal mischief in progress complaint.

Troopers say 26-year old Dylan Ackerman told them that he broke numerous American flags from several grave sites.

They say Ackerman then became uncooperative and refused to provide any further information.

Ackerman was charged with criminal mischief, criminal tampering and trespass.

He was arraigned in Town of Mexico Court and sent to Oswego County Justice Center on $2,500 bail.
