Man arrested on felony charge for damaging boat at Owasco Marina

  • Staff Report 

On the morning of April 25, 2024, the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a suspicious person at the Owasco Marina. Deputies encountered Andrew R. Orasi, who appeared confused and was allegedly found causing damage to a boat he did not own.


The investigation determined that Orasi had entered the boat, torn out its radio and several switches, and attempted to launch it into the lake by pushing it away from the dock. This act of vandalism led to his arrest for third-degree criminal mischief, a Class E Felony.

Following his arrest, Orasi was released with an appearance ticket. He is scheduled to appear in the Town of Owasco Court at a future date. The Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with additional information about the incident to contact them or leave a tip on their website.
