Windows were broken, a new piano was smashed, wires and thermostats were ripped from the walls and even communion plates were damaged.
On Nov. 26, the church’s minister described to Global News what he discovered when he walked into the building the previous night.
“I didn’t have a flashlight and I started walking on glass,” David Haddon said. “I got the lights on in the sanctuary … then I begin to look around and it just was total destruction, glass everywhere.”
RCMP say a 15-year-old boy from Chance Harbour and a 17-year-old boy from Beaver Harbour were arrested on Nov. 28 in connection to the incident. They have been released from custody and are scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 7, 2018.
