Jefferson County, CO. – On January 29, 2013, between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., rocks were thrown through the windows of the Mountain Light Unity Church at 27054 N. Turkey Creek Road in Evergreen. The damage was discovered by members of a prayer group as they arrived at about 6:00 p.m.
While the prayer group was meeting between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., someone poured a gel-based paint stripper over 17 cars in the parking lot of the church. The stripper took the paint down to the bare metal of the cars, causing extensive damage. There were also scratches on many of the cars. Victim estimates put a total value of the damage at over $43,000. That estimate is expected to climb after actual body shop estimates are completed. Pictures of some of the cars are below.
Anyone who has knowledge of this crime is asked to call the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office tip line at 303-271-5612.
