EUGENE, Ore. – An early morning break-in at a brewery in downtown Eugene on Tuesday caused thousands of dollars of damage, and it's not the first time the business has been hit.

Stephen Sheehan, owner of Elkhorn Brewery, told KEZI 9 News the business was closed for part of Tuesday.

Surveillance video shows a woman throwing what appears to be a rock through the windows of the brewery at about 2:30 a.m. Now, glass and alcohol are strewn around Elk Horn Brewery.

The damages could be around $10,000, the owner said. Just weeks ago, the owner said someone broke windows at the brewery, costing about $3,000 in damages.

Police have arrested Courtney Albin, 30, of Eugene in connection with the incident.

She is accused of throwing bottles at the windows of Monola's Thai Cuisine restaurant and Elk Horn Brewery Tuesday morning. Police responded to the area of East Broadway and Patterson Street at about 4:30 a.m. and contacted Albin in the area of Cafe Yumm.

Albin faces two counts of first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree attempted arson and second-degree burglary. 

Police said Albin was arrested on Sept. 13 for a separate incident at Elk Horn Brewery, where glass was broken at the business. She faces first-degree criminal mischief and second-degree criminal trespass in that case.
