MILFORD, Del.- Milford Police charged a Dover man they said is connected with multiple tire slashings.

Police said the slashings happened from March 20 through April 7.

Authorities said that 42-year-old Morris L Simms III would frequently walk through the parking lots of the Ruby Tuesday, Walmart, Burger King, Dollar Tree and Milford Diner.

Authorities said Simms slashed the tires of twelve different victims.

Simms was apprehended on April 15 for an unrelated incident.

He was charged with twelve counts of criminal mischief under $1000 and seven counts of theft by false pretense under $1500.
