Church Buildings' Windows Shattered by Golf Balls and Rocks

The vandalism reportedly occurred earlier this week at the First Baptist Church of Bogart in Oconee County, Ga.

An Oconee County Sheriff's deputy was called to on Jefferson Avenue Wednesday morning after it was discovered vandals had broken a window in the fellowship hall and another in the main building.

A rear window at the end of the hall had numerous holes in it and the deputy observed a small rock inside the window pane and a golf ball in between the frame and broken glass, according to an incident report. The remaining glass inside the frame was still intact and the building had not been entered.

A second window near the office entrance of the main building was also broken in a similar manner. 

The damage reportedly occurred sometime between 6 p.m. on July 29 and 10 a.m. on Aug. 1. A church staff member told the deputy he suspected it was a random act, possibly a juvenile prank.

Deputies are stepping up security patrols in the area.
