EUGENE, Ore. – A Eugene business has been tagged with graffiti and now the owner is looking to catch the people responsible.
The owner of Home Fermenter, Jason Alderman, said his business has been tagged several times in the past, but this time he believes he caught the men on surveillance video.
Jason Alderman said it happened between 2 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday at his store on Monroe Street. Perpetrators tagged the side of the building and the fence near the back parking lot.
Alderman believes the young men, wearing hoodies and backpacks in the surveillance video, did it. Two of them appear to look out while the other does the graffiti and one even goes back to check the work.
Alderman said he wishes he didn't have to deal with incidents like this.
“It's a shame,” said Alderman. “My wife and I are the only employees here the owner and operators, and it definitely takes from us trying to make sure we make a good experience for our customers.”
He said before this business was tagged as recently as New Year’s Eve and each time it costs a couple hundred dollars to clean it up. Alderman said he did file a report with police and hopes the vandals don’t strike again.
