Man Charged With Damaging Grass Runway at Roxbury Airport

Man Charged With Damaging Grass Runway at Roxbury Airport

Earlier this week, 21-year-0ld Parth Patel, 21, was arrested in Waterbury for enjoying a joyride in his 4-wheel-drive vehicle on Sunday.

The alleged trip went through the old airfield on Route 317. State, Woodbury, and Roxbury police all responded to a complaint of trespassing and criminal mischief at the airport. By the time they arrived, Patel had already fled the scene. He was stopped a little while later on the second leg of his joy ride on Interstate 84.

Patel was charged with second-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal trespassing, reckless driving and unsafe movement of a stopped vehicle. He was released on $10,000 bond and must appear in court on July 20.

This isn’t the first time that the fields at Roxbury Airport have been used for joyriding off-roaders. Several have targeted the area recently, causing significant damage.
