| June 6, 2012

THOMASVILLE, N.C. — Two suspects have been charged in connection with allegedly attempting to burn down a church in Thomasville.

On Monday, police responded to two churches on Jewel Street that were vandalized late Sunday.

According to police, vandals entered the building and trashed church offices, emptied paint cans on the carpets and set various small fires using charcoal briquettes.

Police said during the crime spree, the suspects “defecated and urinated inside the church.”

When reporter Mitch Carr and Photojournalist Mike Durenberger returned to the scene on Monday afternoon, they both smelled gasoline and smoke coming from the building. Carr and Durenberger then spotted two teenagers, one carrying a lighter, running from the rear of the building.
