SACRAMENTO, CA - The owner of a glass company has been arrested following a stakeout at a martial arts school plagued for months by broken windows.
Andrew Krogh, 47, who owns AA Glass and Mirror, was arrested early Tuesday morning with a slingshot and ball bearings in his possession. Krogh was driving a white van that appeared to be identical to the one caught several times on surveillance video on nights that windows were shattered.
The building's landlord said he had spent at least $12,000 since last fall to repair 13 broken windows and that he had hired Krogh to do the work on at least one occasion.
As many as eight students of the Cassio Werneck Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school were hiding in the area immediately surrounding the business complex at 3732 Auburn Boulevard late Monday night when they saw Krogh's van stop and make a U-turn in front.
They alerted sheriff's deputy Jack Noble, another student of the school, who made the arrest.
Krogh runs AA Glass and Mirror from his home on Watt Avenue about a mile from the martial arts school. Reached by telephone after being released from jail, Krogh denied shooting out the windows and said he would need to talk to an attorney before saying anything further.
But based on statements Krogh made to investigators, he was charged with six counts of felony vandalism, said sheriff's Sgt. Tim Curran.
Another business owner said she also paid Krogh to replace windows that had been shot out.
Debbie McCain, owner of Total Beauty Experience on Arden Way, said Krogh showed up in her store the day after one of her front doors was shattered, offering to replace the glass.
McCain said storefront windows were shot out two more times earlier this year, and each time she hired Krogh to replace them.
