Man arrested for vandalizing windows, cars at Auburn Street Beefaroo

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A man is in custody for vandalizing the Auburn Street Beefaroo location Friday night around 7 p.m.

Rockford police say 23-year-old Tramel Rideout is in custody and charged with criminal damage to property for damaging windows and several cars at Beefaroo.

No one was hurt, however, a post on Beefaroo’s Facebook page mentions that their staff is “understandably upset” because the same location was robbed only a month ago.

In response, the store will close at 5 p.m. Saturday night only to give their employees a chance to grieve.

The Facebook post went on to say:
“We want to clearly say that we care about our community of customers and staff at all 7 of our locations. We have no plans to alter our hours of business permanently! We are proud of all of our location on Auburn St., where a Beefaroo has stood for over 30 years!”
