A front loader destroyed $2 million in furniture during a warehouse store crash, which cops are investigating as vandalism.
‘Watching that video, you can’t help but get a wet spot on your cheek,’ David Fletcher, the 58-year-old Deltona businessman told News Journalism One. ‘You are looking at millions of dollars’ worth of furniture being destroyed.’
Fletcher, a furniture dealer, had a deal with a woman Kristi Harris of Harris Investments, to purchase the items, but now that is the subject of a lawsuit by the buyer.

But the sale apparently went sour with the woman hiring a front-loader to trash the warehouse
‘This person came to me and wanted to know if I wanted to sell and I said yes, assets only, and we came up with the price of $2 million,’ Fletcher said.
‘They could not afford to come up with all of it at once so I did $1 million down and I financed the rest giving them a lot of time to even pay the first payment.’
Fletcher says it’s an asset sale that went sour.
Compounding the problem, two days after an eviction deadline, Fletcher said surveillance video showed a woman arriving at his DeLand, Florida store on September 29 with the operator of a front end loader, News Journalism One reported.

A sheriff’s report states that the buyer hired workers with a front end loader to damage all the assets in the building after the buyer was told she was being evicted by the property owner, George Blackmore.
According to the sheriff’s report, the buyer removed carpets, hardwood flooring, walls, beams, an air conditioning unit, and two sinks along with the counter top, all without getting approval.
Blackmore is seeking criminal charges against the unidentified person.
