Vandalism of two semis, pickup truck may have been retaliation from an angry customer, property owner says


Two semi trucks and a pickup truck were damaged in a parking lot in Michigan over the weekend, and the owner of the lot says it may have been an act of revenge. 

According to The Monroe News, the owner of the lot, which is located behind a business undergoing renovations, says that he rented a space in the parking lot to a 51-year-old man looking to store trailers and tires. The owner then later removed the trailers under unclear circumstances without notifying the man renting the space, which made the renter “visibly upset.”

A short time later, the owner discovered that the front windshields of a 1997 Mack truck and a 1997 Freightliner truck were shattered, and the passenger side front door window and rear door on a 2012 Ford Taurus were damaged. 

Upon investigation, officers discovered two large chunks of concrete they believe may have been used in damaging the vehicles, and a man working on the building near the lot told officers that he saw a male in the area who left in a gray Ford F-150 pickup heading northbound on Telegraph.

The owner of the lot believes the vandalism was an act of retaliation from the scorned renter. The incident is still under investigation.
