Detectives with the Baltimore County Police Burglary Unit are investigating after someone tried to break into a home in Parkville on September 24.

Original release (July 5, 2016  5:14 p.m.):

Officers at the Wilkens precinct are investigating extensive vandalism that occurred last week at the Immanuel United Church of Christ in the 1900 block of Edmondson Avenue.

Police are investigating this as a possible bias related crime because of information provided by the pastor that she believes the church has been victimized before because of its open acceptance of gays and lesbians. The church flies a gay unity flag on its doorstep. Police responded to a previous incident involving theft of this unity flag.

Officers responded to the church at about 9:40 a.m. June 30. The pastor told them that someone had broken into the church over night and ransacked it. Police found smashed windows, file cabinets opened and furniture and other items broken and strewn about. A fire extinguisher had been used to spray throughout the church, damaging many items including church pew cushions.

In the music room, various inflammatory phrases were written on a dry erase board. These included, "666," "Hail Satan," WTF is Jezus?" and "Death 2 All."

Police believe the crime occurred some time between 7:30 p.m. on June 29 and 9:40 a.m. on June 30.

This is an open investigation. There are no suspects at this time. Anyone with information about this crime should call BCoPD at 410-307-2020.
