WHARTON, Texas (AP) - Vandals who targeted two churches in
Wharton destroyed windows, overturned pews and damaged musical
instruments.
Members say True Holiness Pentecostal Church suffered thousands
of dollars in damage. Macedonia Baptist Church also was damaged.
Investigators say no property appears to have been stolen from
either church.
True Holiness elder Lee Kimble says he was "just appalled"
think somebody could enter the church and cause such destruction.
A door of the True Holiness was kicked in Monday night.
Macedonia Baptist Church Minister James Malone says he's very
frustrated, saying: "Why do you break into a church?"
Wharton is about 60 miles southwest of Houston.
