The building was last secured sometime between Friday at 5 p.m. and Monday at 7:43 a.m., a report said.

Someone also spray painted the words “F— white ppl” on a fence at a home located in the 400 block of East Fisher Street. The homeowner said the last time he knew the area was undisturbed was around 8 p.m. on Sunday. He discovered it around 10:41 a.m. on Monday.
Quick Copy Print Shop, 324 E. Fisher St., reported a van there was spray painted. Police said a slang term for male genitalia was painted above the word Quick on the van. The words were painted in purple. The property was last secured between Friday at 5:30 p.m. and 8:28 a.m. Monday.
