BEXAR COUNTY - It's bad enough when your home is hit by burglars, but for one local man, that's just the least of his trouble.
During a recent break-in, thieves left behind threatening messages for Gary Allder. Every single wall in Allder's house was tagged.
It is so bad it will cost more than $15,000 to repair.
"The first thing I felt was outrage," said Gary Allder. "Why me?"
For the past few days, Gary Allder has felt a mix of emotions.
"I'm still numb. I'm cautious before I enter," said Allder. "I feel violated. It's the second time I've been hit."
This time, the burglars made their presence known with racial slurs and profanity.
"I mean every wall, ceiling, light fixture," said Allder. "They even did it in my shower."
His toilets, cabinets, furniture and the inside of his refrigerator were tagged.
The vandals urinated on his clothes. They took two pairs of sneakers and even took about $250.
"It will take a lot more than that to scare me, but I'm going to take precaution," said Allder.
Allder is offering a $500 reward to any tipsters.
"[I'll)] pay them the money just to try and catch who is doing this," said Allder.
If and when these vandals are caught it won't change the way Allder feels in his own home.
"You feel violated," said Allder. "I still do and when it's all fixed I'm going to feel that."
The Bexar Co. Sheriff's Dept. is investigating.
