Vandals – please explain

AFTER watching CCTV footage of a group of vandals cause about $2000 worth of damage to his property, a local business owner wants to ask them just why they do it.

The manager of Cetnaj, Glen Creed, said on Wednesday night a group of teenagers, he thought aged about 14-15, had smashed a plate glass window at his business as well as throwing missiles through a window upstairs.

Mr Creed said the footage showed the group pulling pavers and rocks out of the Fitzroy and Villiers Sts roundabout to use as projectiles.

"At first they threw the rocks up until they broke the windows upstairs," he said.

"They sat on the brick wall between our businesses and next door and threw bricks and pavers at the window till it broke."

He said some of them threw the same projectile four or five times before the window shattered.

"I don't know what they get out of it," Mr Creed said.

"I'd just love to sit down and hear them explain what it is that makes them want to do this."

Mr Creed said the group seemed contemptuous of the shop's CCTV cameras.

"As they walked past them, they seemed to just look up at the cameras as if they didn't care," he said.

Mr Creed took the CCTV files to the Grafton Police who said it might be possible to identify the culprits.

"One of the police said it was possible the images from one of the cameras were good enough to identify someone," he said.

"I'm sure if someone sees it and they know the people, they would know who they are."

Mr Creed plans to post the videos of the vandal attack on the company Facebook page, hoping someone recognises the offenders.

"This is just creating a massive bill for businesses and leaves a real bad taste in everyone's mouths," he said.

Mr Creed said the lower- floor window costs about $1700 to replace and with labour, the upper-floor window repair could be the same.
