  • Downtown Columbia businesses vandalized


    Lakota Coffee on 9th street was vandalized around 1:45 a.m. on April 18.

    The vandal broke the glass in the front door and both front windows. They also threw red oil paint across Lakota's awning.

    General Manager Andrew Ducharme says police were dispatched to the store after a 9-1-1 call came in just before 4:00 a.m.

    "It's just sad that somebody decided to vandalize downtown," Ducharme said. "Coffee Zone got hit last week, we got hit this week. Hopefully the police can get out on the street and stop whoever it is."

For many, German was their first language and the language they spoke at home.
