Church Vandalized by "Devilish" Teenagers

Police are searching for answers after a Brighton church was vandalized by three teenagers.
Police say sometime between 3 p.m. on November 23 and 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 25, the teens damaged three doors and broke into Our Lady Of Presentation Church on Washington Street.

Residue from two fire extinguishers was found all over the church floors. A portrait of Pope John XXIII was found on the second floor, cut up and defaced with phrases such as "Devil's Star," "(Expletive) God" and "Scooby Doo."

The church organ was destroyed and a gold crucifix was removed from the altar and placed near the front entrance.

An alarm transmitter and a window were also damaged.

Officers found a bag of Tostito chips, a container of Pringles, a bottle of Sprite, a water bottle, and a half empty bottle of Italian wine at the scene.

St. John's Seminary owns the church and uses the building as a lecture hall and rectory.
