MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department is investigating after an unknown person threw something, most likely a rock, through a plate glass window at the Salvation Army building early Wednesday morning.
Police responded to the scene at 900 Maxwell Boulevard around 6 a.m. where they found the large glass window shattered.
Surveillance video from inside the facility shows a shadowy figure moving around outside the building before hurling something toward the window. As the glass shatters, the figure runs away.
“Whenever you’re trying to help people, everyone doesn’t receive help the way they might want it,” said Bryan Farrington with the Salvation Army. “sometimes people get offended. We’ve been doing all we can to ramp up some of our programs. With that comes change and everybody doesn’t embrace change well. Some people just lash out and especially now, as we’re trying to be more Christ-centered. The enemy shows up and lashes back out.”
By mid morning, the hole was patched up with plywood before repairs could be made. There was no entry into the building or damage on the inside beyond the broken window.
The damage cost the Salvation Army about $1,200 to repair, and that money was already earmarked for other programs.
Anyone with information on this case should call police or CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.
