BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A Buffalo man faces charges accused of pouring a bag of sugar into a vehicle's gas tank over an eviction dispute.

City of Tonawanda Police say 27-year-old Trinier Gray used a funnel to dump the sugar into the tank of a car parked on Clinton Street. The vehicle belonged to a woman on Clinton Street and police say they later determined Gray was upset with her over being evicted from an apartment she owned.

Someone passing by reportedly saw what happened and took down the plate number of a vehicle Gray drove off in.

Gray is charged with Criminal Michief and Criminal Tampering.
