Ohio Man Arrested After Egging Elderly Man's House More Than 100 Times: Police

The victim said his house was sometimes hit more than once a day

An Ohio man faces a felony charge after he egged an elderly man’s house more than 100 times, police said.

Jason E. Kozan, 30, was arrested and charged with felony vandalism after a lengthy investigation by the Euclid Police Department.

Albert Clemens, Sr. told Cleveland.com the eggings started March 2014 and haven’t stopped.

"The accuracy is phenomenal," Clemens said. "Because almost every time when it's nice weather and they launch five or six of these at a time, they almost invariably hit the front door."

Clemens told the publication his home had been pelted several times a week in the past, sometimes more than once a day. The eggings usually happened after dark and lasted around 10 minutes. He also said he felt the eggs were somehow being launched at the house.

Clemens and his wife bought the two-story house 60 years ago, he told Cleveland.com. Although she has since passed away, he still lives there with his 49-year-old daughter and 51-year-old son.

The arrest brings an end to a lengthy investigation by police. According to the publication, authorities visited local restaurants and businesses to find the suspect’s supply. They traced the eggs used in the attack to an Amish farm, but weren’t able to link them to anyone. They even tried getting fingerprints, but once the eggs crack, protein dissolves any possible prints.

"I like the neighborhood," Clemens told Cleveland.com. "I like the city of Euclid. I would live and die in this house — but it's been kind of a nightmare."

Kozan appeared in front of a judge Wednesday and bond was set at $2,000, police said. The case will be forwarded to the Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. It was not known if Kozan has an attorney.
