Vandals smash bank windows

by: Robin Roy City Editor

Police are looking for the person or people who smashed four bank windows over the weekend.

Employees at Chase Bank, at the corner of Fruitville Road and U.S. 301, noticed the broken windows when they arrived to work this morning.

The windows led to small offices and a kitchen area at the bank. Nobody appeared to try to enter the bank, and nothing was reported missing. A computer in one of the offices was within inches of a broken window.

One employee, who didn’t want to be identified, said he suspects kids shot a pellet gun at the glass. However, officers did not find anything in the bank that could have damaged the glass.

Surveillance video is being reviewed to see if any suspects can be identified.

Damage is estimated at $1,000.
