— A Raleigh man was charged Thursday with putting large rocks in the middle of a road in southern Wake County, damaging at least two vehicles.

Investigators believe that Sean Courtney Elrod, 19, of 1225 Shannon Brook Lane, placed the rocks in Banks Road, off U.S. Highway 401, said Phyllis Stephens, a spokeswoman for the Wake County Sheriff's Office.

State troopers said a Mercedes and deputy's cruiser ran over the rocks overnight. The Mercedes had a flat tire, and the cruiser had to be towed because of an oil leak.

No one was hurt.

Elrod was charged with injury to personal property and resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer. He was given a $4,000 bond.
