Vandals flood church in Cortez

CORTEZ ” It is expected to take ten days and cost thousands of dollars to clean up damage in a church flooded by vandals in Cortez.

The Cortez Journal says vandals put a hose in the Church of Christ, turned on the water, and it ran all night.

They also broke a window to get inside. Water was half-an-inch deep when it was discovered Tuesday morning.

Police Lieutenant Darrell Hinton says there are no suspects and he wasn’t sure whether it was connected to several other acts of vandalism at local churches that included the scribbling of sacrilegious graffiti.

Cleaners had to remove all the pews to dry out the carpet.
