A popular bus at an Evansville business has been vandalized and the owners are looking for information on the person(s) responsible.

If you have driven by Showplace Cinemas East anytime over the past 15 years, you may have noticed the green Volkswagen bus parked outside of Roy Boy’s Shaved Ice. The Shaved Ice Stand and bus are located along Green River Road. The van itself is a collector's item from 1973. It's a classic and hard not to spot if you pass by it. Now, it's even harder not to notice.

Over the weekend the 1973 VW Bus was vandalized. The windshield was busted out, and it was clearly intentional. Why someone would do this is beyond me. It's been a photo opportunity for customers who purchase shaved ice, and furthermore, it is a very important item for the family of Roy Boy's Shaved Ice.

Now, the family is going to have to get this fixed, which, as you know, will be pricey. All because of someone's lack of respect. It's a very unfortunate situation for the family and the patrons who enjoy seeing the classic VW Bus while enjoying shaved ice.

The family that owns Roy Boy's Shaved Ice is offering a $1000 reward to the person that can provide them with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this crime. There may or may not be witnesses who saw the crime take place, but someone has to have some kind of information regarding the vandalism. If you might have any information, you are asked to call or text 812-319-4100
