Polk County Enterprise - December 2007

LIVINGSTON – Polk County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a case of felony criminal mischief that occurred some time between Nov. 25 and Nov. 28 at the Jones Prairie Baptist Church.

Based on evidence found at the church, the incident is being investigated as a potential hate crime, Galloway said.

A 200 Kawasaki four-wheeler and 16-foot low-boy trailer were taken. Suspects also broke into the house and took several firearms, Galloway said.
