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."
It’s well known that some of Missouri’s earliest European settlers were French, founding cities like St. Louis, Florissant, and St. Genevieve in the eastern part of the state. But it was the Germans who settled along the Missouri River Valley and into northern Missouri. They started to arrive in the early 1800s. They had their own dialect of German, their own newspapers, and were known for their wine, which they made it what is called the Missouri Rhineland. For many, German was their first language and the language they spoke at home.
