NIKISKI — Police are looking for a suspect in the burglary and vandalization of the North Kenai Chapel in Nikiski.

Police say the suspect — reportedly a white male carrying a black duffel bag — forced entry into the church on Christmas Eve. Pastor Wayne Coggins discovered the chapel had been broken into and vandalized.

The Peninsula Clarion says the offertory box was smashed and the contents of a fire extinguisher also was discharged into an office. An anti-Christian message also was left under the door.

Police say to top it all off, the man stole a pound of bacon from the church’s kitchen and defaced a nativity scene outside by replacing the figurine of baby Jesus with the meat.
