Sweet Elizabeth Jane owner Tammy Biedman and her staff put a lot of work into their holiday window, so finding it shattered Tuesday morning was especially hard.
"It felt so personal," she said, standing outside the window as Journey from Junk owner Kelli Myers swept up the glass behind her. "Especially after we spent all night, every night for the last month working on it."
Biedman said she got a call from Howard County Police at about 8 a.m. Tuesday saying they were standing guard in front of the window.
Nothing was missing from the holiday display, Biedman said, which was uncovered for Midnight Madness.
Police received a call about the window at about 6:20 a.m. that someone shattered the display window, according to police spokesperson Mary Phalen. The police are investigating.
