Detectives Trying to Find Vandals Who Hit Montmorency County Business

Posted: Updated:

Vandals hit a Northern Michigan business and broke in, now detectives are trying to find out who did it.

Workers from Huston Real Estate found almost all of their windows shattered Tuesday morning.

Nothing was stolen, but the owners have to deal with a costly mess. The vandals targeted the real estate company in downtown Lewiston in Montmorency County.

The business is covered in windows but now they have plywood blocking their view. Seven windows were shattered but detectives aren't yet sure what was used to break them.

The company's owner, Shawn Huston, says glass was everywhere but the scariest part was that whoever did this came in to the building. And detectives say a lot of damage was done. Detective Sergeant Dan Oelfke, Montmorency County Sheriff's Department says, "There's a door, a back door, that you could tell was broken in and it appears someone went inside and threw something out of the windows from the inside."

Despite the bad taste in their mouth, Huston Real Estate had several local businesses help out with the clean up process.

If you have any information about the vandalism, call the Montmorency County Sheriff's Department at 989-785-4238.
