Deputies: Shaw AFB airmen spray painted satanic symbols on South Carolina church
SUMTER COUNTY, S.C. (AP) —
Authorities say four members of the Air Force spray painted satanic symbols on a South Carolina church that dates back more than 250 years.
Sumter County Sheriff's spokesman Ken Bell said the four suspects were arrested Thursday less than a day after deputies put out surveillance photo of the Sept. 29 vandalism at Salem Black River Presbyterian Church.
Authorities say the four airmen at Shaw Air Force Base vandalized the columns and doors of the church.
Bell said in a statement that 18-year-old Kayla Eilerman of Ingleside, Texas; 18-year-old Clayre Savage of Port Barre, Louisiana; 19-year-old Daveion Green of Leeland, North Carolina; and 20-year-old Brandon Munoz of Baltimore are all charged with trespassing, malicious injury to a house of worship and criminal conspiracy. It wasn't known if they had lawyers.
