Teens in custody for church vandalism

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

WLBT News first reported on the vandalism of a south Jackson church earlier this week.

Jackson Police now have teenagers in custody. Viewers called Three On Your Side Wednesday after discovering several thousand dollars in damage at their small Baptist church.

Beacon Hill Baptist Church is on Hickory Drive. Sometime early Tuesday morning, witnesses report youngsters in front of the church, reportedly kicking at the concrete pillars holding up the portico. That's when the front cover collapsed blocking the entrance.

Police conducted a follow up investigation and suspects were developed. The juvenile suspects were arrested Friday for felony malicious mischief and transported to the Henley young detention center.
