Three people have been arrested and charged in an Acworth church vandalism incident that occurred last month.
According to Cherokee Sheriff’s Office spokesman Joshua Watkins early Friday afternoon, the three individuals, all of whom are juveniles between the ages of 13 and 15, have been charged with second-degree burglary and causing damage to a place of worship.
Deputies from the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office responded to the initial vandalism call on June 3 at Faith Family Church, 5744 Bells Ferry Road in Acworth.
