    Vandals dump sugar inside gas tank of pink Cadillac, business owner says

    A local business owner is trying to get to the bottom of what looks like some targeted vandalism.  She says someone dumped a bag of sugar in the gas tank of her 1960's Cadillac.   The owner, Lisa Harrington, says it happened on Saturday with lots of activity in the store and in the area.  The Cadillac, a landmark associated with the store, was parked on West Colorado Avenue at the time. It wasn't until a few days later when Harrington realized something was wrong.
