Three people are accused of vandalizing nine properties, including three churches, over the course of two days in Rutherford County.

Rutherford County Sheriff's Office says the crimes happened on October 29 and 30, and multiple businesses, churches, residences and the Rutherford County Detention Facility were affected.

Historic St. John's Episcopal Church on Main Street had windows shattered. The Second Baptist Church experienced a damaged signboard and spray-painted columns.

Authorities say Crosland, Conley, and Hipp are now charged with six counts of injury to personal property, five counts of injury to real property and one felony count of injury to building/fence/wall.
