Vandals break windows at 2 Seattle banks

SEATTLE — Vandals broke windows at two Wells Fargo bank branches early Monday in Seattle.

Police said unknown suspects used rocks to smash two large windows and the front doors of a bank in northeast Seattle on Sandpoint Way NE at about 1:30 a.m.

At 3:00 a.m., unknown suspects also smashed at least nine windows at another Wells Fargo in the Madison Park neighborhood. A police dog couldn’t pick up a track.

KING-TV reported anarchy graffiti was left on the door of one bank.

Wells Fargo branches in Seattle have been a target of vandals this year. The Madison Park branch and a downtown branch were vandalized in January. Three other banks were damaged by masked vandals in February in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.a
