Sounds really odd to me.
A well-equipped team like that shows up to vandalize stuff and steal some tools?
IDK, maybe they thought there was drugs stashed in there or something.

Very odd, but they did this to 14 units!!
And only showed up in a car!!

Their movements were very militant and calculated. But they seemed to have enjoyed the vandalism part of this.

Someone has an enemy or a stash you didn't know about, thats my guess.
Or- maybe with all the elaborate getups and the nature of it all... its someone you know.

it seems unlikely that drugs were stashed in a storage yard but it seems really strange. It seems like a dry run for something. That is a lot of apparel to wear for smashing some windows...?

Is there a video?

There are some videos, but most of them show the men tearing off the 13 cameras first.
I don't feel personally targeted, I actually had the least damage. (Smashed window) some of the other RV's were shredded open like a sardine can, trailers with the sheet metal literally torn open. I'm glad they didn't use the crow bar to rip my door open like they did with the others.

There's gotta be more to it than random vandalism. Your normal punks out to vandalize stuff don't go to the lengths these guys did and wear all the tactical gear just to tear up some rv's and trailers, especially since they didn't steal anything of significant value. What do the cops have to say about it? What city is the storage yard located in?

That doesn't surprise me. When I had my car stolen out of a Chattanooga hotel parking lot (ironic, because I was down there for the police test), the video showed them disconnecting and stealing the camera first.

Let's hope there's some good work by the local PD, they manage to nail these b*stards, and hope there's some restitution for repairs

NOW, I am thinking it is a disgruntled employee or former tenant...maybe even the competition?
"Sure, you can use Joe shmoes storage but I think they were just a victim of a break in last week. That is what I heard anyway."
I'm just saying...

Or could it be a security company looking to build some business by showing how vulnerable the location is and promising they can offer ###### to better protect the place?
Or the owner of the storage facility has pissed off someone real bad.
