Wells Fargo branch hit again
Vandals strike in the night
It was around 3:00 a.m., early Monday morning, that "unknown suspect(s)" smashed nine or more windows at the Madison Park branch of Wells Fargo (4009 E. Madison St.). This is the third time vandals have struck this particular branch of the San Francisco-based bank this year, the first such incident occurring in January and the second in May.
According to the online SPD Blotter, a K-9 unit was brought to the crime scene but the police dog was unable to pick up any tracks.
Probably not coincidentally, the Wells Fargo branch on Sandpoint Way NE was also attacked at around 1:30 a.m. the same night, and several windows smashed there. No word on whether graffiti was found at either location. In one of the earlier incidents here in Madison Park, the vandal(s) left messages indicating support for the Occupy movements. But whatever the motivation, there certainly does seem to be a pattern.
