Apparently unhappy over a past tax return, a man entered an H&R Block on Commercial Drive and allegedly began screaming at staff and tossing computers — at one point he even tried smashing the company’s sign through the office’s plate-glass window.
Vancouver police Const. Lindsey Houghton said no one was injured, but damages to the office were estimated at more than $10,000.
“Income tax time can be stressful to some people,” said Houghton.
The 52-year-old Vancouver man was apparently unhappy over an error he had found in a past return that was filed at a different tax preparation office.
He entered the office, located in the 2000 block of Commercial Drive, around 1 p.m. Sunday and confronted staff.
It’s alleged that, at one point, he flew into a rage and began throwing furniture and ripping computers and monitors from desks.
