AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

An Akron man busted for vandalism.

Police say Jesse James Neuman went to a house in his neighborhood that was vacant, but familiar with the house because his sister used to live there.

The 34-year-old told a neighbor that he was hired to replace the aluminum siding with vinyl siding and he recruited the neighbor to help.

They worked for two days and removed almost all of the siding and scrapped the siding for $300. Neuman then paid the unsuspecting neighbor $60 for his help.
