SOUTHPORT - Pequot Library officials say it could take a month to have their vintage stained glass window repaired after it was damaged earlier this week by a vandal.

The stained-glass window, designed by Robert Robertson in the 1980s, was the focal point of the library. The head librarian, Dianne Schlosser, says that someone undid in seconds what took countless hours to create.

Police say the vandal may also be responsible for three similar cases at nearby homes. They say three security systems nearby were also vandalized.

Authorities say they are carefully going over surveillance video from several vantage points.
