The owner of Tacos Los Panchos says the vandals did $1,500 in damage to his stand.The stand, in the 2100 block of Fourth Street, was hit sometime overnight last Thursday. Owner Ignacio Sanabria says someone came behind the trailer and clipped the power, heating and propane lines.For Sanabria, the stand is a dream come true. He’s there seven days a week to support a family of five. “I get all recipes from my grandma, nobody around have marinara pork in town,” Sanabria said, boasting his family recipes.It’s only been eight months since he opened and the last two months have been hard/Sally Showman, KXLY.
