York, Pa. (WHTM) – Charges have been filed against the former superintendent of a York County school district.

Michelle Merkle, the former superintendent of York Suburban School District, was charged Tuesday with two counts of criminal mischief related.

The charges stem from incidents that took place in September on the York Suburban High School property.

According to a criminal report, Mearkle was seen on video placing scratches to a white Jeep Grand Cherokee owned by Patricia Maloney. Later that day, Mearkle was caught on video placing scratches on a Red Volvo, also owned by Maloney.

Damages were estimated at nearly $3,000.

“After a thorough review of the evidence, witness interviews and a review of the law, I determined criminal charges were warranted in this matter,” said District Attorney Tom Kearny following the announcement of charges.

In a police interview last week, Mearkle admitted to damaging both vehicles.
