CAPE MEARES - The two men who were found guilty of severely damaging the Cape Meares Lighthouse in January 2010 have now been ordered to pay $100,000 in restitution and serve several months in Tillamook County jail.

David Wilks, Jr. and Zachary Pyle both pleaded guilty to criminal mischief after being arrested earlier this year for vandal acts viciously damaging the Cape Mears lighthouse built in 1889. Those acts outraged people across the state.

Last January the two young men fired multiple bullets into the glass covered structure, extensively damaging windows and shattering the old Fresnel lenses which had considerable historical value.
