Just one day after he appeared in court to face charges stemming from two unrelated incidents, a local man arrested for spraypainting a sidewalk and possessing a spring-loaded knife early Friday morning failed to appear for his arraignment.
Gleb Dozorets, 21, of 150 Pleasant St., Marblehead, failed to appear for his arraignment Friday in Lynn District Court on charges of vandalizing property, tagging property and carrying a dangerous weapon (knife).
Judge Ellen Flately, who presided over Dozorets' hearing Thursday afternoon, read over the details of the case and issued a warrant for his arrest.
At 2:15 a.m. Friday, police received word that a man was acting strangely behind a home on 174 Pleasant St. When officers arrived, the reporting parties said that Dozorets "showed up and left a pink colored ceramic Chinese figurine statue in (their) backyard and left" without saying a word to either of them.
Then, several minutes after Dozorets left the statue behind, the residents said another man arrived in their backyard and this time left a jar of yellow fluid and told them "it was from Gleb" before leaving, according to court documents.
When the residents followed Dozorets down the street, they reportedly saw him spraypainting the sidewalk and called for the police.
Soon after, officers reportedly located Dozorets driving in the opposite direction on Pleasant Street with his headlights off and pulled him over.
During the traffic stop, an officer reportedly noticed a spraypaint container in the passenger door pocket and when Dozorets handed it over to him he noticed the black paint on the tip was still wet, according to court documents.
After placing Dozorets under arrest for vandalism, police searched his vehicle and reportedly located another can of black spraypaint, a spring-loaded knife with a five-inch blade in the open position and an envelope in the car's center console labeled "weed money" with trace amounts of marijuana inside of it.
On Thursday, Dozorets appeared in Lynn District Court to fight two separate cases. In May, he was arrested for allegedly walking down the middle of Pleasant Street while intoxicated and in June he was arrested after allegedly crashing his car through a row of bushes on Smith Street.
Charges in those cases include negligent operation of a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and possessing less than an ounce of marijuana.
A pretrial hearing date for the case he failed to appear for on Friday has not yet been set.
