[January 09, 2009]  STONY POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- Police in upstate New York say a man has been sprinkling roofing nails on the driveways of people he didn't like to cause flat tires for two years. Stony Point police Lt. Peter Quinn said Michael Delisio was arrested Tuesday after an officer staking out one victim's home saw nails being thrown from Delisio's car.

Quinn says the 60-year-old man from West Haverstraw has been charged with harassment, criminal tampering and mischief.

He says victims in Stony Point and Haverstraw have complained more than 40 times since 2006 and that he's never seen vandalism performed with "this type of consistency."

It was not clear if Delisio has a lawyer. Messages left at the court of his arraignment and at his home were not immediately returned.
