Vandals cause thousands in damage to new construction in Bloomfield Township

- A four bedroom custom home under construction was targeted by vandals earlier this week

"To see this happen, especially in a new building that no one has yet occupied, is concerning," said neighbor Moshin Alam.

The builder Ahmed Abdullah was concerned when he walked through the house and saw all the damage. The house will hit the market soon for around $900,000.

"They broke the window, they sprayed foam all over the walls, grease from a grease gun - they got it all over the walls," said Abdullah of Dokan Construction.

The builder says it's about $5,000 in damages that will cause an unnecessary setback. Abdullah says, what's even more frustrating is that the property was vandalized twice before earlier this summer.

"We do a lot of construction in Bloomfield and Birmingham, but we've never had issues before other than on this project."

As the search continues for those responsible, Alam tells Fox 2 that he saw three suspicious young men at the house a few weeks ago.

"I saw them ripping through the partition. I told them, 'Hey this is not right what you're doing,' and they all ran down the street."

The builder says after dealing with vandalism at the property on multiple occasions, he plans to take steps to prevent it from happening again.

"I think the most feasible would be to put some cameras inside the house. That way, we'll find out who has been doing it," said Abdullah.

When they do find out who is responsible, Abdullah has some ideas for how they should be punished.

"They've got to pay for what they did. Put them in jail for a little while to think about it, because it's not small stuff."
