LANSING, MI. (WILX) - A 49-year-old Lansing man accused of vandalizing a popular southside restaurant is due back in 54-A District Court next month.
Ray Wilson Pippin, of Lansing, is charged with malicious destruction of property at Mr. Taco, 3122 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
The charge is a felony and involves destruction of property valued from $1,000 to $20,000.
Wilson has been released from jail on a personal recognizance bond and has a preliminary hearing set for June 4.
Pippin’s felony charge stems from an alleged incident that occurred around 2 a.m. May 16 outside Mr. Taco while it was closed, according to the Lansing Police Department.
Officers were dispatched to the business around that time after receiving a malicious destruction of property complaint.
Police made contact with Bill Bonofiglo, Mr Taco’s owner, and reviewed surveillance camera footage that showed a man throwing landscape rocks through several windows.
The restaurant has been open off and on for several days since the alleged vandalism occurred.
