Thieves, vandals hit local property owner again

Lawton_A business owner has been hit by vandals yet again and this time, it resulted in more than $60,000 in losses and damages.

A police report shows Bobby Mansel was storing about fifty washers and dryers in a building in the 900 block of C Avenue. All of them were stolen.

On top of that, the thief stole copper, air conditioner motors and several feet of electrical wiring.

Authorities say damage to the building itself totals $50,000.

Just last month, Mansel reported vandals had damaged two rental homes he owned in the 700 block of SW 45th Street that he had planned to sell.
