OMAHA (KPTM) - Business managers near Midtown Omaha are flaming mad about graffiti vandals who tagged their shops.

The destruction of property was especially bad in the area of 55th and Center Streets Monday. People who work nearby tell Fox 42 News it happened sometime late Saturday night.

Dino's Storage was just one of many places that was hit. The manager says vandals tend to strike during holiday weekends, which is frustrating.

"It looks horrible and it's just unfortunate that kids don't have anything better to do these days," said Dino's manager Kerry Lambert. "It doesn't look good on the community or businesses in the area."

Lambert says thieves have also stolen fuel and car parts in the last few months.
