Armed Forces Career Center vandalized
MARYSVILLE — A group identifying itself as "Puget Sound Anarchists" has taken credit for the vandalism of an Armed Forces Career Center and a Wells Fargo Bank on State Avenue in Marysville on the morning of Monday, June 24.
U.S. Navy Chief Mass Communication Specialist John Lill explained that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is working with local law enforcement on the ongoing investigation, "since this is a government office," at the same time that he criticized the vandals' aim.
"It didn't really affect our people's ability to do their jobs," said Lill, noting that the Armed Forces Career Center remains staffed and open for business, even with large sections of plywood in place of the glass in its windows and one of its doors. "They might see this as an attack on the military, but the property is owned by local civilians. It's those local owners whose property was destroyed. They're the ones who will have to pay to fix it, and pay more insurance."
On their website, the Puget Sound Anarchists took credit for smashing the glass and gluing the locks of not only the Armed Forces Career Center, but also the nearby Wells Fargo branch.
