After responding to a call ib the night of June 22, officers found a bulldozer — with the motor still running — inside the center’s reception room.

Before crashing through the wall of the room, the bulldozer driver left a path of property damage, running over several acres of plants, greenhouses, and wiping out the system for watering plants. Officials also said they found a large quantity of plastic plant buckets burned.
