SEYMOUR Police has confirmed it is investigating a report into vandalism at a church in Broadford.

A man, who wished to remain anonymous, informed the North Central Review of the damage caused to their church which visibly upset some in the congregation.

The man wrote in a letter the vandals may have got into the building using keys ‘entrusted’ to them.

“[They] proceeded to paint scriptural graffiti onto the back wall of the pulpit alcove,” the letter read.

“Those who attended the service on Sunday, [November 26] were confronted by this appalling and despicable desecration of an innocent church.

“Sadly, it could not be removed until the police had finished their work.”

The vandals also allegedly cut the bell tower’s rope.

A police spokesperson confirmed the investigation was underway but could not make any official comment at this time.
