ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A young man was caught smashing the shop’s windows in a surveillance video at 8:30 Sunday night.

In the video he picks up the rock, throws it at the window and then throws it again. He then kicks in the glass. The vandal didn’t enter the store or take anything.

The thrift shop on Menaul near San Mateo sells donated items to help fund operations at Animal Humane. It raises more than $600,000 for homeless pets every year.

“We don’t understand why anyone would want to do this. Particularly to a thrift store that is there to help fund saving cats and dogs in our community,” said Peggy Weigle, Executive Director.

Back in 2013 surveillance cameras at the thrift store captured people breaking into their dumpsters. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
