MELBOURNE, Fla. -

An angry Central Florida shop owner is retaliating in a unique way after a window was punched out at her store.

Plywood boards now cover the shattered window of The Petite Boutiques in Melbourne. The message scrawled in chalk reads: "WINDOW REPLACE: $600.00. VIDEO CAMERAS: $3,000.00. DARK HAIRED WHITE MALE WEARING GREY T-SHIRT WHO DIDN'T SEE CAMERAS: PRICELESS!"

Angela LoPresti says she got a call from police about the break-in over the weekend.

LoPresti has since launched a social media campaign to find the suspect, saying she "just had to get it out."

Local 6 News partner Florida Today reports that LoPresti turned over the surveillance video to police.
