SHREVEPORT – Linwood Baptist Church is searching for answers after a fourth incident of vandalism on its property in the past several years.
The incident occurred sometime between late Aug. 3 and early Aug. 4 at Linwood Baptist Church. According to Pastor Ed Gonzalez, the person responsible drove through a chain held up by two steel beams on the church parking lot. The result was steel beams that are now leaning, with repair costs estimated to be at least $3,000.
Gonzalez said signs are posted warning people not to back into the area that was damaged.
Linwood Baptist Church has surveillance near the front of the property but does not have cameras in the back of the parking lot to possibly capture the person who committed the act of vandalism. Gonzalez said the church is unable to pay for repairs and is pleading for someone to come forward with information.
Even with the setback, Gonzalez said the church is committed to serving its community.
Linwood Baptist Church operates a food bank, clothes closet and area to wash clothes and take a shower to others from the community in need.
For more information to help with repairing the damage or if anyone has information about the incident, call Gonzalez at 318.393.7737.
