WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Woodstock Police are working with another agency to determine if a suspect accused of vandalizing churches Cobb County is the same person who may be responsible for an incident that happened in May.
Woodstock officers were called to His Hands Church on May 4 after the church had been tagged with profanity and other spray-painted messages.
According to the incident report, the officer noticed on the front doors the words "[expletive] God' painted in red several times. "God Failed Me" was also painted on the outside of the building.
A church member told officers they suspected it to be a man who had been complaining that the church was not willing to help him out. Officers took photos of the vandalism; however, they said they have not released them at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
But over in Cobb County, police arrested a man in connection with vandalism that happened at up to four churches over the past few months. They said 32-year-old Clint Benjamin Vance was arrested in connection with the crimes after churchgoers at one location said he was caught on surveillance video in the act.
Vance was charged with three counts of vandalism to a place of worship.
Woodstock police said investigators are currently working with Cobb County authorities to determine if the cases are related.
Church of Christ was one of four Cobb County churches that were struck between April 29 and May 8; all of them within seven miles of each other. Noonday Baptist Church said they have dealt with this sort of thing before, which is why they had set up a surveillance camera.
