But, there was significant damage to both the front door and back window. Ferris says the front window was smashed-in, and the back door was also beaten-in and its window was smashed.

Ferris says this isn’t the first time his business was attacked by vandals. The recent attack brings the break-in tally to four, in the company’s 11 years of operation.
