Guy Does $10K in Damage to Wrong House: Cops

(Newser) – Ajinka Kelka may be wishing he read the address number a little more carefully. The 20-year-old New Jersey man is accused of seeking revenge against his ex-girlfriend's new guy by attacking his property—only he got the wrong place, the Star-Ledger reports. Police say Kelka was caught on home-surveillance video causing $10,000 in damage to a South Brunswick property early Sunday morning. Slashed tires, obscenities scratched into a vehicle door, and the slashed roof of a Jeep Wrangler are all described in a police report. Arrested a few hours later at home, Kelkar faces up to five years on charges including trespassing and third-degree criminal mischief, Pix 11 reports. (Read more New Jersey stories.)
