LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Officers with the Lufkin Police Department arrested a 30-year-old man on a felony criminal mischief charge Sunday after he allegedly went on a drug-induced rampage and trashed his hotel room, doing an estimated $5,000 worth of damage.

Jonathan Brian Winicki, of Huntington, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a state-jail felony criminal mischief between $1,500 and $20,000 and a misdemeanor failure to maintain financial responsibility charge. His bail amount has been set at $500 for the FMFR charge.

According to the Lufkin Police Department’s daily activity report, officers were called out to the Motel 6 located at 1100 S. Timberland Drive after Winicki refused to leave his room at the checkout time.

When the officers arrived on the scene, they found Winicki trying to leave with a full trash bag, the report stated. At first the LPD officers thought the bag contained stolen items. However, when they looked in it, they found broken light fixtures and electrical wiring.

Upon entering the hotel room, the officers found that Winicki caused more than $5,000 worth of damage by ripping out almost all the electrical wires and light fixtures, dismantled the $3,000 air conditioning unit, took plumbing fixtures from the bathroom, broke a television valued at $300, and drew on several pieces of furniture, the report stated.

Winicki was taken to the county jail after he was checked out by paramedics who were called to the scene because he said he didn’t feel well.

Later, Winicki allegedly admitted to trashing the room in a fit of paranoia after he took methamphetamine. He told police that he though there were spying devices in the room.
