The two patrons apparently locked themselves in the bathroom on the second floor and waited for the bar to close for the night. “Then they opened every single one of the bar taps so it caused damage to floors drained ten taps stole about $6k worth of booze,” Audette said.

The vandals never stole any money but they stole some portraits and caused plenty of damage.
