AZUSA >> A 32-year-old transient was behind bars Friday after smashing out the windows of a Foothill Boulevard business with rocks earlier in the week, causing $6,000 worth of damage, police said.
David Firestine was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism in connection with the incident, Azusa police Sgt. Xavier Torres said in a written statement.
Police responded shortly after 6 p.m. to a report of someone throwing rocks through the windows of a furniture business in the 900 block of West Foothill Boulevard, officials said.
“When officers inspected the business, they found that nearly all the windows to the business had been broken, including the two front glass doors,” Torres said. “Several large rocks were found inside the business. The damage was estimated to be approximately $6,000.”
Six windows on two floors were smashed, in addition to the front doors, Sgt. John Madaloni said
No one was inside the building when the vandalism occurred, Torres added. “The motive for the vandalism is not known.”
