A vandal appears to be targeting Catholic churches in Pomona Valley, with the most recent attack on a beloved statue at a Chino church.
On March 30, a vandal trespassed onto the property and delivered a blow that severed the statue in two.
The damage made the church recall a strikingly similar crime at another local Catholic church.
Just a month ago and three miles away in Montclair, a person was caught on camera hopping onto a planter at Our Lady Lourdes Catholic Church and using what appeared to be a sledgehammer to hack the heads off two of their statues.
Saint Margaret Mary’s Church thinks the same person is responsible for both crimes, and now they wonder if the same person destroyed their double pane stained glass window last month.
“It’s a picture also of Mary that was just shattered by a huge, huge stone,” Hacker said.
