BOISE, Idaho — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Cherry Lane near Vista Avenue in Boise was vandalized overnight on Oct. 13.
A door was broken and multiple messages were left around the building, according to a leader of the congregation.
One message left on a classroom whiteboard read, "Satan says hi," with three smiley faces drawn around the text and another message was left that read, "I'm sorry but I'm poor."
"The vandalism adds another element to me, where they destroy things just for the sake of destruction," Con Hobson, who teaches Sunday school at the church and lives across the street, said.
Hobson says the vandals also tore a picture off the wall and that this isn't the first time the church has been targeted.
Pictured below is one of the messages that was left:
"This is the second time in thirty days," Hobson said. "We have had some break-ins, we always thought they were looking for money before."
It is unknown how many people were involved in the vandalism or the motive behind the incidents.
"People are welcome to come to the church anytime I don't know why they would do that," he said. "I don't know if they have something against the church or they are desperately looking for something but the vandalism adds another element to me where they destroy things just for the sake of destruction."
The congregation leaders filed a police report concerning the incidents but no suspects have been identified.
