Texas Community Boosting Efforts to Stop 15 Years of Tire Vandalism

After 15 years of police efforts to find a pesky tire slasher, members of a community in Hyde Park, Texas, are taking matters into their own hands. Hyde Park Homeowners Association members agreed recently to spend $10,000 on high-definition cameras to help police catch the suspect, who members say is a homeless man. Austin police said they have also been tracking a man for 15 years, whom they've arrested from time to time for petty misdemeanors in the area, but no one has caught him in the act of puncturing tires. The number of punctured tires is up to 80 a month.
