Front door cov­ered in bricks

The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

Afamily has been left in shock af­ter their front door was cov­ered in bricks by pranksters.

An un­named man and his fam­ily from Of­fen­bach, Ger­many, were left in shock when they opened their front door one morn­ing and were faced with lay­ers of brick, held to­gether with mor­tar, stacked across the en­trance to the prop­erty.

Of­fi­cer Ing­bert Zacharias told Ger­man news out­let hes­sen­schau.de: “The man opened his door in the morn­ing and stood in front of a wall. Trick or joke, we do not know.

“This is a crime and not a joke.”

In to­tal, the es­ti­mated dam­age costs were € 500 (£425), as re­mov­ing the wall also in­cluded re­mov­ing the door frame as well as the bell.

And this isn’t the first time Ger­man pranksters have caused dam­age in this man­ner, as a sim­i­lar prac­ti­cal joke in 2015 caused thou­sands of pounds worth of dam­age when the door of a train in Ham­burg was bricked up.
