Colecchia said police estimated the damage to the vehicle and store is between $30-50 thousand. She added she’s unsure the cost of the lost merchandise, saying hundreds of pairs of frames, including some of the store’s most expensive, were destroyed.

By noon, most of the debris had been cleaned up and staff was in the process of boarding up the damaged storefront.

Officials have not yet spoken on the incident.
