Ukiah Police are looking for a vandal who damaged the fellowship hall at Ukiah Methodist Church on Sunday. The chairman of trustees of the church tells the Daily Journal the vandal sprayed two fire extinguishers throughout the social hall, tore down Christmas lights, and dumped bottles of cleaning solvent and cans of cleaning powder on the maple floor, possibly doing permanent damaged. He says the intruder probably didn’t even break into the building if they used a rarely entrance that is sometimes inadvertently left unlocked. They do not go into any other locked area. The church does have insurance. So far police have no suspects.
