WILTON, Conn. (AP) — An 80-year-old Connecticut barber is accused of trying to sabotage a barbershop that opened a few doors down.

The Connecticut Post reports (http://bit.ly/2hxge4C ) that Agron Komoni, owner of Agron’s Barbershop in Wilton, began having problems in August.

He says he found a key intentionally broken off inside the lock of his shop. A few weeks later, a toothpick was jammed inside. The same thing happened again four more times, so Komoni installed a video surveillance system and notified police.

Police say the system caught Frank DiMarino in the act Dec. 4. DiMarino co-owns Razor’s Edge, a barbershop about 100 yards from Agron’s Barbershop.

DiMarino turned himself in Sunday on a charge of third-degree criminal mischief for the incident this month.

He did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
