North Olmsted police said Surratt was identified after the story aired. He is charged with two counts of criminal mischief and one count of criminal damage.

According to police, Surratt dumped oil, paint, and trash in the middle of the night on Sunday.

The resident told 19 News the suspect is the same man who delivered her Uber Eats order earlier this month.

She said she reported the Uber Eats account because her food was supposed to be delivered by a woman named Helen in a Toyota Corolla and instead it was delivered by a man in an Audi.

North Olmsted police told 19 News Surratt was disgruntled because Uber fired him after the victim filed a complaint.

Surratt is scheduled to appear in Rocky River Municipal Court on Sept. 5.

Police said he was released on his own recognizance.
