Vandals stuffed paper towels into the sinks of the upstairs restrooms inside the 800 Trinity Building, turned the water on full blast and left the premises sometime Tuesday.
The resulting devastation was discovered at 6 a.m. Wednesday by contract laborer Frank Tirre, who noticed water in the storage closet of Baskin Robbins.
“I called the complex manager Ben Lujan and he told me to check the bathrooms,” Tirre said. “Water was everywhere.”
Lujan toured the building, saying, “They really made a disaster here. One business upstairs lost 11 computers and who knows what else.”
The water flooded the upstairs offices and rained down on the offices and retail outlets below, bringing all activity to a halt.
“We can’t do any business,” said Uli Campbell, owner of Uli’s Cottontail. “I want the kids who did this to be caught so they can come and see what they have done to us. We are all struggling and this means we can’t do any business.”
She continued, “My carpets are ruined. They ruined clothes and my computer and typewriter. The walls are ruined. I have to repaint.”
