Vandals have struck one neighborhood in Vancouver, causing thousands of dollars in damage.
The vandalism spree started a few weeks ago and since then, more and more businesses have been targeted.
Vancouver police said it's all happening in the Lincoln neighborhood off of East 39th Street near Main Street.
In some cases, the vandals were caught on camera.
Along East 39th Street, there are several homes and businesses that line this part of Lincoln neighborhood.
"It's kind of disappointing, because we're a neighborhood establishment and we've only been open less than two years," said Scott Flury, owner of Latte Da Coffee House and Wine Bar.
Flury is trying to understand why his business has been hit four times by vandals in the last three weeks.
Surveillance video from the coffee shop shows one of the suspects walk up with a sledge hammer and break out the glass to the walk-up window.
That suspect can then be seen reaching in and taking a bag of mocha powder.
Minutes later, another person is seen walking and grabbing another bag of powdered chocolate.
"It's very frustrating, yeah," added Flury.
Less than a week later, the vandals were back and broke out lights and two more windows at the back of the coffee house.
"To have it happen like that, it kind of makes you wonder what's going on," said Flury.
They're not alone.
Next door at the Farmers Insurance office, a pond in the front yard sits empty after vandals stole the Koi.
The lights around the pond were also damaged.
"It is frustrating because we love our fishes and are trying to protect them. I don't know what's going on," said Blanca Guerro, who works at the Farmers Insurance office.
Vancouver police said there have been numerous reports of vandalism and graffiti in this area over the past month.
Those who live in this part of town are angry that someone would target them.
"It costs money to repair the damage they've done, and I think it's very disrespectful," said Leann DuBois, who moved to the area four months ago.
In the meantime, Flury is already working to replace the broken windows and lights. Once it's all complete, he said it will have cost him about $2,500.
Flury does plan to install four more surveillance cameras around his coffee shop, with hopes that this vandalism spree is over.
There is a community meeting at Latte Da Coffee House located at 205 E. 39th St. on Friday at 6 p.m. to discuss the growing problem and even look at possibly offering a reward to catch the people involved.
