Local church vandalized

Posted: December 6, 2011 - 1:19pm

A spray-painted swastika and references to both the devil and drugs covered Aldersgate United Methodist Church on Tuesday morning, the apparent work of a vandal or vandals.

The Juneau Police Department received a report of the vandalism at about 1:17 a.m. Tuesday, according to a release from the department. In addition to the swastika, the numbers “666” and “420” were painted on the church, apparent references to the biblical number of the beast and marijuana, respectively.

No other graffiti was found in the area or on nearby churches, the release states.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call JPD at 586-0600 or visit juneaucrimeline.com.
