A College Station restaurant was forced to shut its doors after vandals put concrete in their grease traps.

The Newk's Express Cafe on University Drive shut down on Monday morning after employees found the restaurant's grease traps filled with rock hard concrete.

The restaurant reopened on Tuesday but repairing the damage and lost sales cost the restaurant close to $10,000.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened in College Station.

According to the CSPD, back in November Boston's had to deal with the same thing.

"You know I hope that if any other restaurant can take something from what's happened here is to protect your manhole covers. There's definitely people in town that are looking to do you harm. I wish somebody would have told us and maybe we would have been able to prevent it," said Tanner Berryhill, owner of Newk's.

If you saw anything in Newk's parking lot overnight on Sunday, you're asked to call CSPD.
