• A North Aurora man was charged with trespassing, criminal damage to property and assault Feb. 3, according to a sheriff's report. Todd N. Clark, 44, of the 800 block of Pinehurst Court, is accused of riding a snowmobile on Marmion Abbey farmland near Hart Road and Route 56 in Aurora, after being warned last year not to do so, according to the report. An abbey worker told deputies he saw Clark riding on the property and told him to leave, but that at 2:15 p.m. Clark cut a steel cable that crossed a path and rode on the property again. The worker followed Clark to his property, and saw that a hole had been made in a fence separating the abbey farm from Clark's property. The worker told deputies that Clark threatened to fight him, stood close to him and held up clenched fists. According to the report, Clark told deputies that he had made the hole in the fence to clean up leaves and brush and to move his snowmobile on to abbey property, and that he would install a gate. The report also said he told deputies he had been riding on abbey property for 20 years and nobody ever complained, and that he only rode along a fence line to get to Butterfield Road.
