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.

  1. I used to have an account at the Madison Park WF branch and then after the banking scandal and lack of any accountability for the banking scoundrels, I closed this account and all my accounts with banks and started using a credit union instead. I am all for the Occupy movements goals to turn back Citizens United and to have new legislation to really regulate banks, particularly the ones setting the London interest rate (see latest Libor film flam). These kinds of glass breaking vandals do not represent me or most people in the OWS movement. Violence like this is not a solution at all. It is a destructive problem. I hope they catch these people and put them in jail, even though almost no banker criminals have been jailed.
