OHIO COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – The Ohio County Sheriff’s Office has named the suspects in connection to an Ohio County church vandalism.
The sheriff’s office is looking for Earling George Iverson III and James Ray Howard, both of Evansville.
The duo was last seen in the Leitchfield area and were released from the Daviess County Jail the day before the vandalism, according to the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office.
The vandalism happened last week at Pleasant Grover Church.
Deputies say the vandals went into the church through a window, using a shepherd’s hook from the cemetery.
The suspects are accused of ransacking the building and destroying several items.
Deputies say drinks taken from the kitchen were poured throughout the church, and juice was poured into the thermostats, damaging the HVAC units.
Holes were knocked in the walls, which had also been spray-painted, deputies say, and a fire extinguisher had also been discharged inside the church.
Authorities say other damage to the church included a wall light being smashed with a cinder block, and a lock to a shed being pried off.
If you know where these men are, you’re asked to call the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office at 270-298-4444.
