JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A local pastor called 3 On Your Side for help Friday when once again church property was vandalized.

Pastor McRay Johnson says Love Charity Hope Ministry at 4304 Highway 80 West, near Metro Center has been hit by vandals repeatedly in the last two weeks. Friday afternoon he was notified more windows had been broken out.

Pastor Johnson called us to meet him on the property along with officers. He says so far 13 windows have been smashed. He showed us some of the damage. He says no one breaks into the building they are just destroying windows.

"We've asked JPD of course to come and at least patrol the area to see if they can catch somebody here. But they're doing it in the daylight, we've been down here at midnight they have done it. You know just riding through and checking. And we're just asking anybody that drives by and sees anybody pulling out from here just call", said Johnson.

Pastor Johnson says so far it has cost the ministry $2,400 to replace six windows on the front of the building. Now he has to make arrangements to repair the new damage.
