Two Alabama men are charged in a church vandalism case involving over $50,000 in damage.
A police spokesperson said the pair broke into the Nichols Temple A.M.E. Church in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, on June 5.
WERC television reported the vandals destroyed six bathrooms and stole copper wire from the church’s A/C unit. They also pulled pipes out of the walls and caused flooding throughout the building.
WSFA television posted surveillance videos of vandals inside the church.
Nicholas Rashad Lee, 23, and Cedric Jaquese Carter, 19, of Birmingham, are charged with burglary and criminal mischief. Each is held on $10,000 bond according to jail records.
Jail records show both men had been previously released on bond for a non-related auto theft and sale that happened May 2018.
A motive for the vandalism has not been announced.
