Vandal smashes windows in Albuquerque's EDo neighborhood

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –Vandals shattered windows at several businesses in Albuquerque's EDo district over the weekend.


Bhava Yoga Studio saw the brunt of the damage.

"Three panes of glass got damaged, five strikes," said Marisol Brito, co-owner of Bhava Yoa Studio. "It happened up and down the whole street and no one was caught, no one really knows what happened."

Hot Yoga Downtown was also hit.

"Well it only broke the outside pane, so we're lucky this time that it didn't go all the way through," said co-owner Molly Krause. "But sometimes it goes through both panes. We will just replace it, as always. It's something, unfortunately, we've gotten used to, part of being in the area I guess."

Both studios say they've had their windows smashed multiple times over the last few years.

Krause says car break-ins and smash and grabs have also increased in the area.

"It's like twice a week at this point with the cars," she said.

Krause put up signs, warning yoga participants to take their valuables inside.

"Now we have a guard that stands outside in the early mornings because we are afraid that people are going to get broken into," Krause told KOB.

Yoga instructors say it's taking a toll on business.

"This is an expense that is coming out of my pocket," Brito said. "I'm going to have to spend money to get this repaired."

APD says it's hard to catch whoever's responsible without proof, such as surveillance video.
