Vandals Flood Main Chapel, Other Rooms Of Palmdale Church

PALMDALE (CBSLA.com) — Mass Sunday is expected to take place outside a Palmdale church a day after authorities say the main chapel was flooded by vandals.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the Horizon Community Church in the 1800 block of East Avenue R was the site of a break-in about 10 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities believe the suspects made their way through a glass window. Once inside, deputies say the vandals trashed several offices and rooms and broke into a safe stored on the grounds.

Authorities say nothing of major value was taken from that safe.

Before leaving, deputies say the vandals unrolled a fire hose and turned it on, flooding the main chapel and several rooms.

“Just kind of a sad, sad moment but we’re not gonna let it get at us. We’re not gonna let it bother us. We’re gonna keep going,” said Pastor K.C. Wahe.

Authorities say the church was a target of another break-in just a day prior. In that instance, a guitar was stolen.

No arrests have been made.
