South Hill church vandalized

UPDATED: Fri., April 6, 2018

From staff reports

A South Hill church was vandalized early Friday morning and Spokane police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the culprits.

At least one person broke into Bethel Church of the Nazarene on the 1100 block of South Thor Street, police said, and caused thousands of dollars in damage. A guitar was also reportedly stolen.

“What’s unique about this burglary is that the suspect(s) did not just break in and steal things, but also vandalized the church,” SPD said in a news release. “A urinal and drinking fountain were ripped off the walls, a sink was ripped out of the counter, cupboard doors were ripped off their hinges, miscellaneous food items were strewn about the church, and other items were moved and broken during the crime spree.”

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
