Vandals Damage Perry Hall Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall

The Fellowship Hall at Perry Hall Presbyterian Church located at 8848 Belair Road was broken into and extensively vandalized in the late hours of December 29, 2013. Damage included broken windows, an air conditioner torn from a window, as well as, blood spattered walls and carpeting (the vandals cut themselves on the broken glass). The break-in was discovered at about 10:30 PM and two suspects were quickly apprehended due to the rapid response of police from the Parkville Precinct and a K9 unit.

This building serves as a community resource and meeting place for organizations including Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, MS Support, Youth For Christ and a Masonic Lodge. Many families have celebrations here as well and the damage to this building has affected the greater Perry Hall Community.

Although clean-up has begun, the cost of repairs and renovations is expected to exceed the insurance resources. Donations for this project supporting the Church’s efforts may be sent to the church at the following address:  Perry Hall Presbyterian Church, 8848 Belair Road, Nottingham, MD  21236. For further information, call 410-256-6780.

Suspects caught? A little more information here would be helpful. Local juveniles or professional crooks? Sounds like locals but clarification would be nice.

Word is that the cretins were 2 brothers, aged 18 and 19. The K-9 tracked one of them to the area behind the diner near the church. They broke every window in the building, trashed everything in the refrigerator, and even urinated all over the carpets. This church is in tough financial straits already.

There were also a bunch of cars vandalized not even a mile from this church off of Belair Rd by Silver Spring Mining Co in December... very similar MO. Stupid youthful vandalism.
