Authorities have nabbed a man who's accused of spray-painting images of Sasquatch on public property in Kennebunk, Maine.

Police in the picturesque coastal town didn't find the graffiti featuring Bigfoot all that amusing and charged 36-year-old Freeman Hatch with criminal mischief and possession of drugs. He's due in court in November.

Kennebunk Police Chief Robert MacKenzie says the Sasquatches defaced public and private property, "costing time and money to repair or replace."

Sasquatch is the folkloric beast thought by some to roam the forests, particularly in the Pacific Northwest.

Police say the graffiti was concentrated around Kennebunk Beach.

A phone number for Hatch could not be located. It was not known if he had a lawyer.
