One of the owners of Two Street Gallery, Kate Wood said this isn’t the first time this has happened. She said nothing was stolen, but her business had four double-paned windows broken.

Wood says they plan to get the windows replaced, but is sad that someone would commit such a pointless act of destruction.

“It’s too bad people don’t realize the impact they have on anybody when they do damage,” Wood said with a sigh. “Whether it’s broken windows, or damaged merchandise, or just breaking in, it really affects many people.”

The Fairbanks Police Department (FPD) said they have identified a suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FPD at 907-450-6500.
