In Pa., it's 'terrorism by mice'

By Washington Post Editors

A man in Pennsylvania has been arrested and charged with trying to sabotage competing pizza shop owners with mice, according to this report:

"It's terrorism by mice," said Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood. "I've never had to deal with mice as an instrument of crime before, but mice multiply. They spread disease. This really could have caused a lot of damage."
Nikolas Galiatsatos, 47, of 1000 Conestoga Road, Bryn Mawr, was charged with criminal mischief, harassment, disorderly conduct and cruelty to animals.
