Vandalism reported at Bloomington Bagel Company and construction site

Bloomington Bagel Company vandalized 

Vandalism was reported by the owners of Bloomington Bagel Company on Tuesday morning.

The letters H, S, S and X were scratched into the glass of one of the North Dunn Street shop’s windows. The meaning is unknown to police.

The owners said the crime happened between 3 p.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday.

There are no suspects, and no arrests have been made in the case.

Attempted burglary at construction site

A call came in from a construction site on West Kirkwood Avenue and North Morton Street reporting a burglary early Tuesday morning.

Nothing was taken, but police found a pile of tools stacked near a fence by the perimeter of the site.

They also discovered the construction office had been broken into and vandalized with spray paint taken from the office. 

It is unclear what the words spray painted in the office say, but Bloomington Police Captain Steve Kellams said it’s most likely someone's graffiti tag.

Reports say the vandals also turned off the sump pump at the site, causing flooding in its basement.

The crime occurred between 5 p.m. Monday and 5:50 a.m. Tuesday. No arrests have been made at this time.
