RENO, Nev. (AP) — The minister of one of several churches hit by a string of vandalism at Lake Tahoe says they appear to be satanic attacks by an individual who is "very angry with Jesus."
The Rev. Jeffrey Ogden, the Presbyterian pastor at The Village Church in Incline Village, told The Associated Press on Friday he's seen nothing to suggest the attacks are socially or politically motivated.
The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone responsible for the incidents, which began with graffiti at five Tahoe area churches on Easter Sunday and continued in August.
Last weekend, someone tried to saw down a wooden across in front of Ogden's church. He says they returned Tuesday night and tried unsuccessfully again to bring the cross down.
