Two young Tennessee boys have caused thousands of dollars worth of damage to a Loudon County church, according to officials.
Last month, members of the Lee Heights Baptist Church off Muddy Creek Road discovered the damage when they arrived for church services on Wednesday night.
The vandals used the children’s toys and art supplies to damage the sanctuary, fellowship hall, and Sunday school rooms.
They also smeared food for needy families and their own feces and urine on walls and floors.
According to Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider, all that damage was done by two boys, aged 6 and 7. The boys are not members of the church, but Sheriff Guider said they had attended Vacation Bible School at the church the week before.
The church decided not to press charges because of the age of the boys. DCS was called in to investigate because of the apparent lack of supervision of the boys.
Sheriff Guider said there was a number of volunteers who showed up to help clean up and repair the church.
