GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) - A historic church and school suffered thousands in damages. Now, authorities there need your help.

It's been more than a week since the vandals struck, but so far police have no leads. It happened at the Second Union Baptist Church and its school house, where damages are estimated between $12,000 to $18,000.

County authorities tell us that the church had seven windows broken, three of which were stained glass. The school had fourteen windows broken. There was also damage to a cross and a fence in front of the church.

Investigators believe part of the fence was used to smash the church windows. If you have information, you are asked to come forward.

"We're hoping we get some information from some of the community because quite frankly we don't have a lot of evidence and we need all the help that we can get in this particular case." said Goochland Sheriff James Agnew.

The building dates back to the late 1800s. The church recently had $40,000 worth of renovations completed.

If you have any information about who did this you can call the Goochland Sheriff's office. Their number is 804-556-5349.
