Harry's Ace Hardware, located in the 3500 block of Magazine Street, was the victim of afternoon vandalism recently. The suspect, who is still sought by police, was pretty gutsy with his attack. Employees noticed him approach the store wearing latex gloves and carrying a can of spray paint. When confronted, he laughed at the Harry's Ace Hardware staff members. The fast-acting team members were able to take a couple of pictures before he ran away. Police believe they have identified the perpetrator, and seek the public's help with bringing him to justice.
New Orleans police are working diligently to find the suspect, but warn business owners in the area to be on the lookout. Vandalism, especially spray-painted graffiti, can cause your business to look unsafe and uninviting and can be a factor in lowering property values. Short of turning your establishment into Fort Knox, there are effective security options available. If your store, warehouse, or production facility has been the target of vandalism, you may need to up your security game.
Maintaining curb appeal and keeping your premises safe is possible with the right safety plan. In addition to motion sensing lights and security cameras, you may also want to consider the services of a uniformed guard. When you have a professional guard, vandals will think twice before targeting your building.
