Chemical attack strikes Dickinson church

| February 1, 2011

GALVESTON — Last week, Mary Frank arrived early as she does every Sunday to open the Christian Fellowship Ministry Church in Dickinson. When she got there, she found someone had knocked off the front-door lock.

Frank, 60, the church secretary, stepped inside to find a chemical had been poured on the carpet from the front door to the pulpit, eating all the way through and into the concrete.

The chemical was poured over the 20 pews, cutting through wood and upholstery, and in the kitchen. The church's three guitars, two keyboards and amplifier were gone.

"I can't put it into words how I felt that day; it was so emotional," Frank said.

Dickinson police Detective Frank Price estimated the damage caused last Sunday at about $25,000.
