SOUTH BEND, Ind. – A local college student faces serious criminal charges after authorities say he broke through a wall and vandalized a business.
Using a 100-pound flower pot and a hammer, police say Brian McCurren, 19, of Maineville, Ohio, broke into Therapeutic Indulgence in South Bend while drunk.
The University of Notre Dame freshman used the flowerpot to break through a front door and then a hammer to dig through drywall into the main building, according to local television station WSBT 22.
Police charged McCurren with burglary, vandalism and underage drinking Monday.
McCurren was found passed out inside a second floor kitchen of the business after a burglar alarm went off at about 9:30 a.m.
Once inside, McCurren sprayed four different rooms with a fire extinguisher and broke lamps.
When found, police said McCurren was very disoriented. The business owner, Sara ros Frazier, said McCurren caused several thousands of dollars worth of damage.
