NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — A North Fort Myers business owner is outraged after someone vandalized several of his company's box trucks Monday night.

It happened at the Crazy Deals Home Superstore on North Tamiami Trail.

Damages include broken side mirrors on two of the four box trucks and spray-painted profanity.

The box trucks are used to make home deliveries — and to begin everyday operations — employees spent three hours cleaning two of those trucks.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office was on scene Tuesday investigating the damages.

FOX4 spoke with the business owner, who says the damages may cost thousands to repair.

"If we have to replace the graphics on the sides of the trucks, it could be close to 10,000 dollars. The mirrors alone are 450 dollars apiece, and we have to special order them," said Mitch Alberio, owner of Crazy Deals Home Superstore.

Alberio says he hopes LCSO can find whoever is responsible for the damages, and he plans to press charges.
