(Grand Forks, ND) -- A Grand Forks man accused of going on a tire slashing spree in a Grand Forks neighborhood last October has pleaded guilty.  

Authorities say Matthew Morris caused more than $17,000 worth of damage. He faces a felony criminal mischief charge.  

Investigators say Morris became a suspect when a health app on his phone showed he was walking in the area where 80 tires were slashed that night.
