OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former priest tells Omaha police he's been the target of vandals and thieves.

Daniel Herek was sentenced in 2006 to four months in jail for exposing himself in an Omaha parking lot. That incident came while he was still on probation for molesting a 14-year-old altar boy. The defrocked priest served 2 1/2 years on that charge.

Now, Herek has filed a police report, saying someone wedged an orange construction cone into his front door, making it impossible to open the door.

Also, he says parts of his paper were taken. And he says his garden hoses were taken from his porch and damaged, then left in his neighbor's lawn.
