Vandals shattered CSU chapel's stained glass window

FORT COLLINS COLORADOAN - Vandals shattered a two-by-three-foot stained glass panel and rummaged through storage areas in a Colorado State University chapel over the weekend.

The panel, which is likely worth thousands of dollars, was installed in a floor-to-ceiling window when the Danforth Chapel was built in 1954. It was crafted from mouth-blown glass and included pieces imported from Europe.

The suspects broke through the panel to gain access to the chapel sometime between Saturday around 5 p.m. and Sunday around 5:30 a.m. Once inside the chapel, they rummaged through cabinets and storage areas.

The university's facilities staff members are working with the original window manufacturer in West Virginia to estimate the total cost of the broken panel and whether or not it can be replaced.
