Milford man arrested for puncturing tires on 15 vehicles

A Milford man accused of  puncturing the tires of 15 vehicles confessed to the crime, according to police.

Police received complaints of vandalism to the tires on Sept. 22.

The alleged tire slasher, Paul Wheeler, 59, confessed that he punctured the tires in retaliation of neighbors who called police to report a disturbance at his home the day before, police said. Wheeler lives on Park Circle.

He is charged with 15 counts of criminal mischief and was released on a promise to appear.


  1. The guy should do jail time - period!

  2. Wow...the slasher...initial report may have been merited given his response.

  3. This fool should do jail time after he reimburses every vehicle owner for the damage that he caused. What a lowlife.

  4. Bottle of wine to chill out and meditate: $20
    Cost to repair those tires, bail etc: $2000 +

    Restraint and common sense: Pricele$$

  5. While watching my son play baseball the next day I noticed the police and residents who were out at there cars with slashed tires. I want to commend the Milford Police for the work they did on this. Fine work to all of you !!!

  6. Fifty-nine years old!!!???***
