No ransom, no theft - just destruction pure and simple.  He wanted possible revenge for something slighted or imagened so .... and this is dumb.  He left a trace obviously or people simply saw him put the stick into the system and WHAMMO done, gone and moved on.  Look at the tine and time in pen.  Hysterical that one could be so stupid and think one can get away with it.
