Church damage in Jasper County

JASPER COUNTY, Ga. — Investigators in one Georgia county are asking for help finding the people responsible for vandalizing church property over the weekend - possibly the same people who did it months earlier.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office has released photos of a church covered in mud, a lawn destroyed and at least two vehicles they believe were responsible for the damage.

"The pictures attached tell the story of a despicable act," the sheriff's office said.

Concord Church had previously been the victim of a similar action back n February when unknown suspects drove their vehicles through the yard, "slinging mud, grass and rocks all over the building" according to the sheriff's office.

"It cost the church time and money to clean the building, then have it repainted," the sheriff's office said. "They also had to have the yard graded and replant the grass that was damaged."

The sheriff's office said the grass had started to grow back and the church was "shining with its newly painted exterior."

But that changed on Friday and Saturday when someone damaged the property yet again. Now, the sheriff's office is asking for help finding those responsible for the crime and they said a reward is being offered for worthy tips.

Anyone with information about the owners of the vehicles pictured is asked to contact the Jasper County Sheriff's Office tip line at 706-468-5376 or 706-468-4912. Tipsters will remain anonymous, the sheriff's office said.
