The owner of Bailey’s Cakes estimates it could cost her more than $1,000 to replace a store window.
“I’m sure that’s probably what it is. Kids just thinking it’s funny but they just don’t understand the destruction it causes and what it really costs people whenever they do things like that,” Laura Lynch said.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
