Apartment manager reports vandalism

Police investigated on Friday a Glendale apartment in shambles with animal excrement on the walls and its sliding-glass door glued shut.

The building’s manager notified police of the incident at about 2:55 p.m. after he discovered the vandalism during an inspection of the apartment in the 1000 block of Thompson Avenue, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

The unit had a strong odor of urine and animal feces, which was smeared on the walls, police said.

Someone reportedly had knocked a large hole in the ceiling so water from a faucet would leak into the wall. The unit’s sliding-glass door was also glued shut and its carpet was ruined.


The manager reportedly told police he believed previous tenants were responsible for the vandalism because they were evicted after neighbors complained about them.

Still, police haven’t made any arrests in connection with the vandalism.
