Police in Thornton, Colorado say three 15-year-olds have been arrested for causing over $80,000 damage to a church the week before Easter. According to the Denver Post, two were arrested Tuesday evening and one was arrested Wednesday morning. The identity of the suspects has not been released because of their age.
The trio broke windows, punched holes in walls and destroyed musical instruments at the North Huron Christian Center. A tweet from the Thornton Police Department described the act as, “malicious destruction of church property.” A police spokesperson has not said why the three wanted to damage the church.
According to TexasGospel.com file stories, Pastor Renee Coventry says the congregation will hold Easter services in the building.
A Go Fund Me page with a modest goal of raising $5,000 to help the church has been set up. As of early Thursday morning, the fund has reached $3,877.
