ELLETTSVILLE — A church is asking for donations and authorities are looking for suspects after vandals were caught on camera spray painting the Old Dutch Community Church in Monroe County.

Sheriff's deputies were called Tuesday afternoon to the church after members reported it had been spray-painted with vulgar and anti-Semitic messages, Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Tim Pittman said.

Authorities in Monroe County are looking for two people who allegedly vandalized the Old Dutch Community Church on Monday, Sept. 2, 2019.
