Morristown Police are investigating why several Speedwell Avenue storefront windows were smashed last weekend.
Officer Joseph Heuneman responded Saturday morning to Speedwell Wine and Liquor, whose owner said he had arrived at his business at 8 a.m. to find his front window smashed. The owner of the liquor store said no rock or any other object that could have been used to break the window had been found, according to the officer's report.
The owner said he had closed his business at 11 p.m. Friday, meaning the incident would have happened sometime between then and 8 a.m. Saturday. He also told the officer an alarm was set, but he had received no phone calls from his alarm company, according to the report.
Meanwhile, Heuneman noticed several storefront windows from Early Street to Flagler Street had also been smashed in a similar fashion. He spoke to one nearby store owner whose windows had not been broken, who advised the officer their security cameras may have been pointed toward the sidewalk. Heuneman then advised that store's owner to contact the police department for follow-up.
By early Thursday evening, the liquor store's windows had been fixed, as had any others the officer had noticed. One store, Peluqueria Hispana, still had cracks in its windows. It was unknown whether these cracks had been from the apparent weekend spree.
If anyone has any information regarding these incidents, they are asked to contact the Morristown Police Department at 973-538-2200.
