Police in Port Angeles, Wash., have arrested a man accused of using a bulldozer to destroy two homes and power lines. “A person with a piece of heavy equipment that was very upset, struck two homes in the area and also a truck,” Jim Borte with the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department told KOMO-TV. Borte said one of the homes was partially knocked off its foundation.
The suspect, Barry Swegle was booked into the Clallam County Jail for investigation of malicious mischief. Borte told the Seattle Times that Swegle was “highly agitated” and that “apparently there appears to be an ongoing dispute with some of his neighbors.”
Jesse Major, a 19-year-old student who said his grandmother lives in one of the damaged homes, told the paper that Swegle is known in the neighborhood because he sometimes digs seemingly random holes with a bulldozer late at night.
